Understatement of the Year?

Topic: Understatement of the Year?

As he reviewed pilot crash reports, my Air Force military science professor stumbled upon this understated entry:

"After catastrophic engine failure, I landed long. As I had no power, the landing gear failed to deploy and no braking was available. I bounced over the stone wall at the end of the runway, struck the trailer of a truck while crossing the perimeter road, crashed through the guardrail, grazed a large pine tree, ran over a tractor parked in the adjacent field, and hit another tree.

"Then I lost control."
