Let's see your parkflyer CRASH pics!

Bow before gravity! I'm opening this thread to all crash photos. Any parkflyer built from any material: foam, balsa, depron, eagle feathers, what-have-you. The more tangled, the better!

Oak Tree vs. Glassed GWS Corsair...

Well here is my Corsair, flying low and inverted; pull up and SMACK into the curb. I glued it back together but its not the same, it will be replaced with a P-51 soon.

These GWS Corsairs probably see more abuse than any other plane. I wish I had taken a photo of my second major crash, but here's the "repaired" fuselage. This one won't fly again. Lucky me... I've got another on the shelf, ready to fly.

I'm tempted to take a sledge to my P-51 just to get off the subject of Corsairs.

IF you're tired of corsair pictures here's a Wingo. It was a pretty good AP plane until the wings folded at about 400'.

And just in case you guys are giving up on your crashed planes....don't give up just yet. I managed to get my FW190 flying again. Substantial repair time and effort required...but its possible.

Just a small sampling.

Yellow TM, wings folded while during high G's with a 300 motor.

Red TM, midair over the runway when trying to do a touch & go while Luis' Jenny was taking off.

Formosa, zigging when a zag was called for.

Switchback, this one is from way back, wing folded from building error and not following instructions.
