RVFDRS was dispatched for an airplane crash near the 25000 block of Germanna Hwy. Little Fork Technical Animal Rescue was returning from a call in Spotsylvania and were only a few miles away when the call came over the radio. They responded and did an initial scene size-up. Chief 6-1 arrived and took command. Medic 6-1 and Wagon 6 responded. All three occupants are alive with no life threatening injuries because of the steady hand and calmness of the pilot instructor. We do not see calls like this every day.
