    Cool plane. I bet it gets rebuilt. Good on him for accepting responsibility for a poor decision.

    Everybody makes mistakes, sometimes the results are worse than others. They walked away. After you have crashed, walking away is a win.

    What's the saying? Any landing you can walk away from...

    That fate seems to befall a lot of Wilgas.

    I would really love one though. Risky as they might be

    Sweet plane. I've followed in on youtube for a while. Glad he made it to fly another day.

    Walking away from that without a scratch, man that's lucky.

    I remember one particularly bad landing as a student pilot. (Didn't bend anything, but was embarrassed.) My instructor said something similar WW - he said any landing you walk away from is a good landing... what did you learn? This guy's video is good - and he seems like a humble pilot. Glad he's around to fly another day.
