Plane stuck in tree

OMG I know this could have ended horribly but this guy was great. The 911 dispatcher sounds more nervous then the PIC. I love the chuckle at 1:31. Mr' Gregory if you are on our forum I give a big salute of being so calm.

He was cool, calm and collected. The pilot, John Gregory, was 79 years old.

Although none of the reporting provided the tail number of the airplane, a TV news video of it in the treetop clearly shows N727WW, a 2004 E A/B PA-18 Super Cub replica according to the FAA Registry.
