How do you go from this to that? Upside down to right side up? Lots of careful planning and big construction equipment

the brakes were way too touchy, and grabbed just a little too much!  for the full article and more photos.  Cool blog, written by a car and plane enthusiast, who collects Coleman gas lanterns and is a master carpenter. Incredible work.

  1. Thanks for the plug, much appreciated. We arrived just as the accident happened so we just missed the actual event. It is amazing what a bunch of good old boys can do with some heavy equipment. Don't even think the FAA showed up. Had it happened in a more urban setting it would have been much different. Its a shame the nice Cessna 195 got damaged. Pilot informed us he had just upgraded the brakes and was not used to the additional grab and this is what caused the arse-over-teakettle situation. He simply touched the brakes too soon.
    Kind regards, Michael Silvius
