Before there was Sully, there was Ippolito!

Landed on GW bridge, Hudson River, 26 December 1965.

Fuel filler tank cap not secured, came off in flight, spraying fuel everywhere.  He landed on the bridge because his pax couldn't swim.  (Aeronca 7AC Champion N84838).

Nice job avoiding the upper bridge supports!
