My wings have been clipped...

... and that's a good thing... I think...Here's the gang from MMS Aviation showing up and surveying the situation.

Here's Dale, starting to trim off some damage.

Andy also got into the action, trimming off damage at the tip of the right wing.

Paul got to removing the Horton STOL addition from the tops of the wings using a makeshift hammer! These guys are all business, as you can tell.

Little by little, things started to disappear. First to go was the elevator surface.

Then, the damage from the end of the right wing was gone. (notice that Andy is using a metal bar to pound out other damage in the background. He seemed to be having a lot of fun)

Then, the rudder and vertical stabilizer were no more.

...and there goes the horizontal stabilizer... the tail has been clipped!

Then it was time for the wings. You may notice the left wing gone here.

Half hour later, the right wing was gone. It's looking a lot different now. Not sure how I feel about that, to be honest. It's a good thing, of course, I know... I know.

Then, in the distance, we saw a beautiful, Central African sunset... Time to call it a day.
