WWII Vet Crash-Lands His Plane: 'I Never Really Got Worked Up'
A 92-year-old World War II veteran dodged homes and cars to crash-land his single-engine plane in a vacant lot in Florida.
Air Force veteran Bill Orban was forced to make a split-second decision when his plane lost power over a river.
The former bomber pilot said the plane went silent, and he knew he had to quickly find a place to land. He told Elisabeth Hasselbeck that there wasn’t time to panic – he just had to make a decision.
“I never did really get worked up about it,” he said of the ordeal.
Orban’s grandson said that their family only learned what happened after reading about a 92-year-old World War II veteran’s crash landing online.
“There’s not a lot of those around here, especially still flying,” Tyler told the Bradenton Herald. “We called him and he was like, ‘Yeah, can you come pick up the plane for me?’”
Orban, who walked away from the crash uninjured, said he will fly again once he gets his plane fixed.
