  1. Update to the above information. Damage was limited to the leading edge of the vertical stabilizer. No damage to the rudder or flight controls. NTSB was contacted and provided all the information and they confirmed this damage did not meet NTSB reporting criteria and report was not required. Unbolt and bolt on new vertical stab. No damage to the hull structure or mounting points. Repairs made and returned to service.
