Pilot Feels embarrassed after running out of fuel and landing in a crash.


A pilot says he’s “embarrassed,”After running out of fuel, the pilot crashed into a Florida neighborhood. He was lucky to be alive.

The shocking video below shows the Cessna’s single engine Cessna crashing into a driveway at Orlando. 

“It was pilot error. Just trying to do too much, rushing, a big mistake. I have more than 10,000 hours, and I’ve never run out of fuel, so I’m embarrassed,”Remy Colin spoke to Inside Edition. 

“I said, ‘Mayday, mayday, I’m going down.’ I said, ‘I’m probably going to die,’ so the best solution there was to let the plane stall. It slowed my fall enough that I didn’t die, and I was able to bounce to put in the trees and not hurt anyone else,”Colin stated. 

Colin sustained only minor scrapes and bruises. He says he’s ready to get back in the sky.

“Maybe I became a little complacent, so it was a big eye opener for me. Trust me, I learned a lot from that mistake,”Colin stated.

The FAA as well as the NTSB are investigating this crash.
