PEACHTREE CITY, GA (WTVM) – "Never underestimate this rising generation!"
Those are the words of Steph Lund, the mother of a 17-year-old Georgia girl who had to make an emergency landing on a neighboring golf course on June 29.
A post on the Peachtree City Police Department Facebook page shows Sierra, 17, had to make an emergency landing on the Planterra Ridge Golf Course near the #11 tee box on June 29.
Sierra has received a great amount of praise for the safe landing – she was unharmed and posed in a picture next to the small plane, with a golf game going on in the background.
In a response to the post, Lund said that an engine failure forced the emergency landing during her daughter's student pilot training.
Nice landing, Sierra!
