Default has it ever happened to you?

I have seen 2 seperate incidents of something similar, but worse. On one occassion, the frenzy around the plane, and other non pilots coming over to see what was going on, 2 people while trying to tip-toe around tripped over each other and landed on three planes...all totalled.
On the second occassion people standing around forgot about the planes behind them. While turning around to leave, one stepped on the planes wing and the other kicked a fuse. I couldn't believe what I saw next, they actually gave each other a look and ran to their car and left. Got their plate and the police handled it.

This is why I keep my planes in the truck, when they are not flying. Between careless people and unwatched kids, they don't stand a chance.
