It was 10:30 pm on a moonless night and I was flying final approach to an airport in NC. Off went the power taking with it the landing lights, electric flaps, radios and all the electrical instruments.

This was before the snazzy LED headlamps, so I ended up putting the miniature flashlight that I had on a lanyard in my mouth and used that to scan the instruments while I flew a no-flaps approach and landed.

The most important thing - remembering to spit the metal flashlight out just before the wheels touched.

But having done a no-electrical night landing and put together several boats, I think I'd rather land without power again than try and put the deck on in the dark. Well done, Jay.
