    Stan Thompson does not remember the take-off. He doesn’t remember the crash. He doesn’t even remember how he exited the burning upside-down plane or how he managed to be standing several feet away near a tree when help arrived.

    All he knows is that early on the evening of June 12, he came close to losing his life when his single-engine plane crashed nose first into a wooded ravine a couple hundred feet from a grassy runway near Little Mount. And he’s pretty sure he knows who saved his life, even if he can’t explain how.
