Dad crashed my plane

#1
So my pops and I decided to go fly our new planes. Mines been flown before, crashed and fixed, his is the maiden. We both flew rather well initially, then dad had a minor crash that required repairs. I let my dad give my sensei a try. Immediately after takeoff he said my sensei was way more squirrelly than his plane. He ended up losing his spacial awareness, and well, this is the result.


And before it gets mentioned, we don't try to fly near the plant, or power lines. Dad had an oopsie. We were at a local park that has 2 open ball fields. While not optimum, it is decent sized. Though we scouted and found a much larger location for future use.












Thankfully, my grandfather is the head of the HOA, so we called him and got the code for the treatment plant and retrieved my fuselage. The wings stayed in the lines, so I ordered new ones :/

Now that's funny. When I scrolled down and saw the wings in the wires I busted out laughing.

It's good to laugh.

Thanks for sharing.

At least you were able the retrieve the fuse...So is Dad footing the bill for the replacements? or is the shame enough punishment?

That's a joke...it happens to all of us in some way or another. Usually in front of an audience...

Yes, it's amazing how little we realize that until later! It's great you guys get that chance to fly together now.

Growing up my folks were always pretty cool. Except when they caught me doing dumb things! lol

Dad was a Narcotics officer, mom was a pharmacy tech. The running joke in the family was mom sells drugs and dad busts other dealers.

He's gonna poop Legos when he sees his Xmas/birthday presents! Spitfire kit and power pack!
