    Crash into Pit Area, No Rebuilding

    Guy loses what looks like a large EDF Foam jet into the pit area. Not a whole lot left. Amazing no one hurt or vehicles damaged. Just foam tumbling in the breeze...

    My guess.. ailerons's are backwards...

    It sounds and looks like a small turbine?? Pilot also asks for buddy to get his fire extinguisher. Close call!

    It sounded like the motor quit and he turned left over the pits and lost control. Rolled over to far and gave it "UP" elevator also known as
    "dumb thumbed it"

    Lucky fellow. But it was only a foamy.

    A turbine foamy no less. You can see the engine when the pilot is inspecting the wreckage. Its integrated into the tail of the plane.
    Trees have a tendancy to grow a few feet when airplanes try to fly over them.

    Sounds like the engine was fine even after the crash you can hear it ramp down. Id say pilot error, why would he turn towards the parking lot and not the other way around?
