I was there when the DLG hit the power line. It was like a fireworks cannon went off! There was a big black cloud of smoke and the plane fell to the ground on fire. It was crazy!!!
Here is a photo of the remains.

Yeah, sad for the pilot but very entertaining for the rest of us. Was probably the coolest thing I saw at Seff.

I heard one guy explain the still-shouldering wreckage on the ground as looking like "a TERODACTYL burned in a fire.."

I feel for the pilot who lost a plane, but that was a very visual description.

I saw some jaw-dropping crashes.

Unfortunately, and certainly not intentional, my 44 inch winged T-28 made a quick "thwack" sound when it connected with someone's ultra micro airplane. It appears the "connection" didn't leave a visible scar on my airplane nor was the flight performance ever affected. But then, what would one expect when the flying weight of 30 ounces traveling ~40 mph impacts something that weighs less than an ounce traveling at ~20 mph?

Oops, that's all I can say.
