But there's always the fact that if you're involved in a car accident, you'll probably go to the hospitol, if you're involved in a plane crash, you'll probably go to the morgue.

no, that statistic only compares fatality rates, and most plane accidents can be walked away from.

Tail strikes can result in the entire plane frame being a write off, happened at an airport a few hours from here.

I've seen a lot of reports where the A&P just had to replace the tail guard. I guess it depends on how hard it is hit because too hard could bend the airframe.

as funny as some of these pics may look...plane crashes are pretty serious, expecially like mentioned above...when the fuel catches fire.

Planes aren't toys LOL...so pilots should take their "Skills" somewhere else LOL..perhaps to a flight simulator eh...

Yep. Planes are not toys and should be used in an orderly and appropiate fashion .





These pilots! Always flying low.....
