Pardon us while we play through

Coast Guard Chopper Lands On Golf Course

POSTED: 4:03 pm EST December 13, 2006


Play was interrupted at the Fleming Island golf course Wednesday afternoon when a U.S. Coast Guard HITRON helicopter made a precautionary landing.

The Coast Guard said the crew set the helicopter on the fifth hole of the course just before 1 p.m., made some equipment checks and took off.

A Fleming Island homeowner told Channel 4 that some mechanics arrrived to make repairs, the aircraft was restarted and hovered briefly, then landed again. After a brief conference, the aircraft took off and headed east.


The whole incident took just over one hour.

I can just imagine that conversation....

Pilot: "Hey, you still owe me 20 bucks"
Copilot: "We never finished the hole"
Pilot: "You'd have lost anyway"
Copilot: "Oh Yeah?"
Pilot: "Yeah- Fine, we'll stop here and finish it!"
