Crash Landing

Some of you may know or have heard of my ex-wife.
She had started taking flying lessons about the time our divorce started and she got her license shortly before our divorce was final.
Yesterday afternoon, she narrowly escaped injury in the aircraft she was piloting when, due to volatile weather, she was forced to make an emergency landing in a garden and crashed.
The absence of a post-crash fire was most likely due to insufficient fuel on board.
No one on the ground was injured.
The following photograph was taken at the scene and shows the extent of damage to her aircraft.

ROTFLMAO

Showed this to the wife. She responded with: "Tell him to fly this bird" followed by her favorite gesture.
