Disaster narrowly averted

John Hutti (sp) narrowly averted disaster with his new Goldberg Cub. He was doing a left approach but wrongly corrected to keep the wings level throwing him into a 270 degree turn and landing on the right of way north of the field.

I say landing because the plane was sitting on its wheels without visual damage. It did turn out that a wing hold down block had stressed the plywood where it was glued but that looked to be the extent of the mishap.

John was fortunate to get the plane leveled out as it went down. It may have been skill... but from what I saw, a little bit (perhaps a lot) of luck was in play.
