  1. This plane looks like a pile.

  2. Awe man ... That was one sweet ride.
    Flying doesn't get any cheaper.
    Nothing spared when it came to maintenance... Except money.

  3. That there is a bare-bones budget project.
    Duly noted, as an alternative for a life raft is a inflatable kiddie pool.

  4. Darn they messed up the brand new paint job.

  5. The kiddie pool is probably catching fuel.

  6. anonymous "what fuel"

    and I quote from the article: "The small plane was leaking gas from the bottom as it was lifted by a crane."

  7. And those were taken BEFORE it crashed . . .
    Seriously, I think they're going to find some airworthiness issues on this one.

  8. Man... oh man, let's just all pile on top of the pilot crapping. Who knows, it's all his fault anyways right? With no official cause listed, you guys are just damned hilarious!

  9. ^^^^^ Thanks for recognizing our attempts at humor. The case at hand is easy considering no one was hurt.

    Of course it is a shame to see a fine device miss-used in such a manner ... Referring to the kiddie pool of course.

  10. Got here by accident. I regret nothing.

  11. oh god this is just like sex...

  12. For sale. Beech musketeer. Bring duct tape.

  13. Duct tape?!?! It's gonna take a helluva lot more than duct tape to fix 'er up for airworthiness!

  14. I've been meaning to get my nosedragger endorsement as well. Now I found the right plane for the job.

  15. If it looks like crap on the outside I suspect it looks like crap on the inside. I do not think an A/P would touch this with a 71 foot pole.

  16. Officials are still investigating, trying to figure out why the aircraft was trying to maneuver to that ditch. The pilots are refusing to answers questions at this time.

  17. Reportedly the 2 on board said neither of them were at the controls ... They were both in the back seat singing.
