Friday as soon as we began operations we had a little mishap at Houma. Seems somebody wasn't following the painted lines and drove our old blue Ford tractor, which has a high roll hoop, under an S-76 and jammed it under a blade. They had to package up the aircraft and haul it to Lafayette on a flat bed. That is going to be one heck of a costly screw up. Blade is no good, that is a 100k or so and somme of the parts, if not the whole head will probably be shot.
I'll tape it to the handlebars, it's just logic George! If your hand is broken, you tape it to the bars! - Evil Knievel's reply to George Hamiliton's question, "How will you jump with a broken hand?".
