Death of Draco

Quite a shock when the fixture of Gootube recommendations for the last year, the one of a kind PZL-104 modified with a turbine & extra large landing gear was destroyed. He took off in a strong crosswind & got blown over. This is why there are maximum windspeeds for aircraft.

He provided 10 minutes of video of him beating himself up but showed very little of the wreck. His passengers miraculously survived without any injury. It must have been a very forgiving airplane for him to be so lethargic about the weather.

In another time, it probably could have been rebuilt with parts from another PZL-104 & another engine. He probably doesn't have enough money to do the job. He seemed to document at least some of the build process, so that's more than the Smithsonian had for rebuilding the Wright flier.
