Inflight Belt Mishap

 Took off this afternoon planning to fly over to the house but never made it! I had launched from Kolb Field in North Phoenixville and not long after crossing past the town my drive belt decided to end the flight and broke. This caused me to have to shut down the motor to avoid internal damage. As I do when I fly my Cherokee, I constantly look for alternate landing sites should the need arise and it did today. Below me, and only 1 mile from my house I could see the Longford Crossing Bark Park. Because there were high tension power lines between me and the dog park, I decided to take the safer route and land in the field adjacent to the factory across the street. Below is the video of that flight.

I do hope you enjoy it! Ya'll be particular!
