Matt Younkin Injured

On Tuesday, November 10, 2009 aerobatic pilot, Matt Younkin survived a plane crash that happened at 3:00 P.M. in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. He didn't have any life threatening injuries, but he did have a broken hand that got treated on and fixed. The doctors also had to stitch up a cut on his leg. He will perform again!

Younkin's family released the following statement through the Younkin Airshows website:

"Matt Younkin was injured while flying the Younkin Mullicoupe on Tuesday afternoon. During his flight he experienced a loss of power and was forced into an emergency landing near a model airplane field south of his home in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Matt's injuries are non-life threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery in time for the 2010 airshow season. We would like to thank you for your thoughts and prayers at this time."
