Wild Ride 

Two Cal Poly students walked away without a scratch after crash landing a single engine plane in a small field 12 miles east of Atascadero near La Panza Road on April 23.

SLO County Sheriff Sgt. Andy Rasmussen says, Jason Diestel, the 22-year-old pilot and his passenger Haley McCaffrey, 20, were watching a group of motorcyclists when they flew into a power cord above a knoll at around 1 p.m. “It was really pleasant to see an accident where no one was hurt, but it will be expensive, � Rasmussen adds. “The right landing gear was totally torn off, the prop sheared, and the right wing buckled.� The National Transportation Safety Board is currently investigating the accident.
