A single-engine plane trying to make a forced landing in the late morning of Tuesday, flipped at the airport Joaçaba city, located 340 km west of Florianopolis. The pilot and one passenger escaped with only minor bruises throughout the body.
The pilot and journalist William Mark Brollo Deczka did a flyover in the city of D'Herval West to conduct aerial photos in the area where the plane had technical problems. The joystick would have had some defect, which caused the pilot to return to the airport to Santa Terezinha attempting an emergency landing.
During the descent, the pilot landed on the grass beside the runway, hit an embankment and rolled over, getting completely "upside down". Deczka said the aircraft would have "lost the stick." "I just went to the side and had no control whatsoever pilto. So we stopped on the grass instead of going to the track," he said. "He was very calm to return to the airport to make the emergency landing. We are born again," sighed with relief.
Although the aircraft was completely destroyed, pilot Mark Brolo suffered only minor injuries. He was rescued by a team from the Fire Department to be hypertensive, but is doing well.

A 701 has the full flying rudder, not a standard vertical stabilizer with a hinged rudder like this one, but the Savannah does.
