How would you like this landing next to you?

Crazy. It'd be even better if they busted out the auger's and started drilling. What a way to run and gun. Burger Jones is a great place to grab lunch.

I've seen planes land on madison and washington over the years. but indeed that would be kinda odd to have a plane set up shop right by ya

No kidding! I live a 1/4 mile northwest of there and fish that lake frequently. That would have been an interesting sight to see.

We actually do this quite often in northern Alberta, with a Cessna 185. Fastest way to cover a lot of lakes in a day!!!!

I was out on Bald Eagle a couple years ago and I heard helicopter come by. It was really loud aso I peeked outside. It was hovering about 40 feet above my portable and blowing around a ton of snow. Not sure what the guy was trying to accomplish...

Happens up here around Brainerd all the time. I can understand the pilots not knowing the laws.

They were in controlled airspace it was illegal for them to land there since it was so close to the airport. Minneapolis is a class B airport and from the ground there is a 5 mile radius that is still controlled by ATC and from my understanding they did not get clearance to land... this is why accidents happen.

trouble is, there are people out there who will use this to pick on sportmens and how they just like to break the rules.

I got buzzed by a plane with skis on Demontreville Lk Sat afternoon. It looked like the yellow one in the article.

Does it seem like there are more float planes? I see them all the time now during the open water season. At one time, I thought they were about the coolest things ever. Now I just consider them jetskis in the sky. Loud and annoying. I've been pushed off a fishing spot than once by a float plane repeatedly doing the touch and go routine.

Pretty major mistake for licensed pilots. Controlled airspace restrictions are no small deal. I wonder if their licenses could be suspended?

One of the worst places to eat. Unless you like $20 so-so burgers and soggy fries!!!

Many years ago I was on Lexington lake (Clear) west of Montgomery , MN ice fishing with my friend John. We had a plane land so close to us. A man and two gals hop out, drilled two holes by hand. The man got back in the plane and left the two broads fishing. Ended up tooling the plane to shore where a resort bar and grill is. He was in and out and back to the girls in ten minutes. It is my belief they were out of beers.

These guys have done this a few times before on other metro lakes. Just happens that they decided to land in a park this time. I'm sure they won't make that mistake again!
