That sucks...hydraulics go out? At least it might not have been the crane operators fault.

Aside, at the bottom of the vid was an add/poll question. "Should the GOP fight Obama on gun control" I went to click the "X" to close it, noticed the only "X" happened to be hovering ON the "NO" answer. Another example of a rigged poll?

Looked to me from the overhead shot ,the crane tipped over as well...too much load too little crane seems to be at least partly at fault.

Didn't you see the Starling land on the back of the Douglas right behind the cockpit? That was the Starling that broke the Skyhawk's back.

Well,then I was partly correct .If the crane had been properly braced ,taking in account the soft ground ,its less likely to have tipped over.

I've seen that ad several times myself. Usually on a "progressive oriented" site.

There's a crane operator looking for a new job.
He probably didn't want to tear up that pretty lawn which explains his extremely poor choice of set-up locations.

Probably the lowest bidder on the job.
