PostSubject: British biplane hits cow on emergency landing   Thu Dec 18, 2008 5:30 am

LONDON Ч A British pilot says he ran into an unusual hazard while making an emergency landing Ч a cow.

Rob Wotton says he was trying to land his World War II-era Tiger Moth after the engine stalled just after takeoff southwest of London on Sept. 14. He was about to touch down in a field when the animal wandered into his way.

Video of the event on YouTube shows the brown-and-white cow being knocked to the ground by the plane's lower left wing. The two-seater was damaged but landed safely.

An accident report says the cow was "apparently uninjured."

Wotton says he might paint a cow on the plane to mark the event.

He says: "I have to say it is the first cow I have ever hit in 22 years' flying."
