How does this Happen?!?!?!?!


Well my friends brother has been trying to learn how to fly and I have offered him my help to teach him how to fly but he seems like he has lost interest. Then he asked me to repair his Cessna for him which I did and the next day they brought me the reminants of his Champ. The damage pics are below. What i am wondering I how in the world do you destroy a champ that bad?

Easy! All you need is a healthy serving of ignorance + a liberal portion of high octane ego ----- and you've got all the ingredients for an ear-splitting collision with Mother Earth. Every time I go out to fly at the nearby playground I get one or more 5-, 6-, 7-, or 8-year old kids who assure me, "Hey, Mister, let me fly your plane ... I know how to fly no problem!" Yeah, sure.

I agree with all of you. i seems as if he got frustrated with it and destroyed it. I only wish i got to fly it be fore it was destroyed. But on the bright side he gave me the remains of it and guess what? All the electronics work!

That cannot be flight damage. I can't think of anything that would break both wings off at the root so cleanly.. Unless he flew in to a snow blower or wood chipper or something! What is the age of Captain 'Crash'?

My wife could do this kind of damage easy! Maybe he was flying combat with some buddies, looks like he might have finished in last place.

Well the reason I am repairing the Cessna i because I felt bad for him because I was trimming the thing out and It fell from the sky. It is no doubt a crappy plane.

He's 13 or 14. I started on the J3 Cub by parkzone which is similar to the camp and i could never do that much damage if I went full throttle into the ground from 30 feet in the air.
