Details are sketchy but first reaction, based solely on the information in this news report?

I applaud the pilot's decisiveness in deciding to make a forced landing BEFORE he was out of fuel.

But I wonder I he didn't just call Minneapolis Approach and ask for a radar vector to Cambridge...

We still don't know enough facts to make a serious analysis but these are some thoughts to consider....
