FedEx Cessna Caravan - IMC - Engine Out !!

Imagine your worst case scenario. Your flying IMC some where around 8000 ft or so, over Upstate New York and your PT-6 gives up the ghost!  I don't know about you, but the thought of that coupled with a 'break out' at a few thousand feet in a Grand Caravan GLIDER!! Put it this way .. I'd need to change my Huggie after all that. My hat is off to Capt. Peter 'Cool Hand' May of Wiggins Airways. Think about it, he had minutes to find a suitable landing site, and to pull it off with out a scratch ... all I can say is job well done!
Here is a Google map of the LZ
