Man films own plane crash, wife and baby on board

Jonathan Fielding was taking his wife for her first flight ever in a small plane over snowy Utah with their 7-month-old son on board when, at nearly 9,000 feet, the pilot announced that the engine had frozen over and they’d need to make an emergency landing. They found a flat field and took their chances, landing the plane upside down; amazingly, no one was injured.

>>> terrifying moment in the sky as jonathan fielding took his wife for her first flight ever in a small plane over snowy utah with their 7-month-old son on board, but at nearly 9,000 feet in the air, the pilot announced that part of the engine had frozen over and they need to emergency land. they found a flat field and took their chances.

>> all right. we're going to land in the field right here. is everybody okay?

>> as you see, the plane did land upside down there, but no one was injured. fortunately, they all walked away from that wreckage unharmed. still very scary to see that.
