Solana Beach became Kenny Loggins’s real-life “Danger Zone” as a Marine helicopter made an emergency landing where the famed singer-songwriter was walking on Wednesday. An image of Loggins’s encounter with the troubled military aircraft went viral after he tweeted a selfie from the landing site.
Loggins referenced his hit song from the 1980s classic movie Top Gun while gesturing toward the CH53E Super Stallion helicopter resting on the sandy shore. According to 10 News, the helicopter landed after a low oil pressure indicator alerted pilots. The military machine was later moved to the nearby Del Mar Fairgrounds, where it could be serviced for repairs.
