Yup, someone in the flight crew should have got at least an atta-boy for bringing that bird down safely, or an honorable mention in the accident report.

Yeah...I've always said that if the incident itself doesn't cause you to meet Jesus, a whole box-full of them will show up after it's over.

For some reason I can't get that incident out of my mind.  What a beautiful aircraft to meet such a fate.  We're it a model I would just fix up the tail assembly, iron out the wrinkles and put her back in the air.  Might have done the same to the full scale if no one else was around.  Smile If she flew home, she should fly again with a little (lot) of TLC. Smile  I have rebuilt four wheelers in worse shape.

It was a sad deal alright, but she wasn't in any shape to be ferried.  The engines were supposedly (or suspected to be) trashed from over speeding, the fuse itself was buckled, and though not REAL obvious, the dive recovery had turned it into a Beechcraft Corsair!   Them Beech engineers sho know how to design wings !!!

We heard later that the whole mess had been shipped to Columbia, South America, so it may be back in action, hauling concaine as this is written....

The crew gave me the severed, free-falling elevator...I take a photo and post it.

Yea................ Paranoid maybe Huh... or possibly an initiation-requirement to become a member of a club... Popcorn Steal a pick-up truck, then an RV... then an aircraft.. then...? What? Would it stop there? Maybe..... Maybe the helicopter was to be flown to a specific clandestine location, possibly on Stockton Lake.. where a prized racing-boat was supposedly kept. Swim 1/4 mile to the location and "hot-wire" the vessel. Your GPS device will give you the ditch-coordinates.. at which point you will swim to shore.. and proceed to secure the 1st available ground-transportation.. and circum-navigate the lake; two revolutions.. and be curtailed by a woman on a motorcycle. Her bike's got a flat-tire.......

Just like people, bad things can happen to good planes.  First of all, no serious injuries were incurred during the final (probably) insult to the airframe of a faithful Cessna 182 Skylane, based at our airport for some twenty years.

Last night, N1800M experienced an engine failure (so far looks like fuel exhaustion), and punched it's nose through a fellow's shop.  The pilot apparently got it onto the ground and just ran out of space to stop.  Our sheet metal magician Todd will have a bunch more work if the Skylane is saved again.

Years ago, it was a 'Club' plane, and experienced a lot of abuse, including a broken nose gear mount, snapped seat locks, and a double brake fire after being towed almost a 1/2 mile with the parking brake on.  The last incident got the Skylane dubbed "Hot Pants" by the line guys.
