This Widgeon has just diverted here without a flight plan and without establishing radio contact (made a B737 overshoot) after flying over Washington State and getting stuck on top of a low marine cloud layer. You can see the pilot (who had his whole family with him) explaining himself to an immigration officer. He was treated leniently, but I'm sure Homeland Security gave him an ear-full when he went back to the USA.
