My dad's going to hate this, he worked on Trimotors when he worked for Harrah's.

Is that the one that crashed at Fullerton Airport(30 miles southeast of Los Angeles)?
If so, the pilots were extremely lucky, they walked away pretty much unhurt, and 2 woman on the ground in an automobile were hurt, but not seriously. The plane looked like a total loss, this happened on Fri the 24th.

Sorry, error, the pilots are in extremely critical condition.

What a shame. I bet those pilots are all fucked up from the yoke.

I was able to step into one at a fly-in many years ago, but never rode in one. The sheet metal looked so thin that it could be dented if I pressed on it hard enough. I know, a sign of the times, but it's still amazing the engineering that went into making a light but sturdy passenger plane.

Damn It always hurts to see a piece of history get destroyed like that even if it is just a replica.
