They Park funny down South & Even Up North *S*

A DeHavilland Beaver on floats piloted by John Sumrall ran short on fuel and miraculously landed safely in the back yard of a house at 3501 Lakeshore Drive across the road from Lake Spenard on Friday. Homeowner Thais Thomas was awakened from a nap when the plane took out the railing on her deck and plopped down softly on part of her garden, which has been featured on the Anchorage Garden Club's tour of gardens. No one was hurt. (Photo by Bob Hallinen / Anchorage Daily News) Published: June 7, 2003
