"The chute worked like a charm. And the prize money will come in handy
to pay the fines," said Joe Eschenbach after landing his Cirrus SR-20 in
El Centro, Calif. Eschenbach, was returning last Sunday from in Mexico
and was 12 miles south of Calexico, Calif., his port of arrival, when
the engine quit. Without hesitation, he used the Ballistic Recovery
System parachute. A stiff wind out carried the airplane to NAS El
Centro, where the Blue Angels had just finished performing. Eschenbach
was greeted by a cheering crowd estimated at 400,000, and a fleet of
U.S. Customs helicopters estimated at seven. The stiff wind had
befuddled the best of the airshow pilots, but Eschenbach nailed it, and
won the spot-landing contest for the weekend.
