    Trent has set up a go-fund-me to help Nikk bridge the gap between the cost of a new plane and what his insurance will pay.

    I'd like to be just a little bit more upbeat, if you read this Nikk. I have a friend who is a doctor at Children's Hospital here in Denver - Jeff Cain. Quite a few years back he lost both his legs beneath the knees in an airplane crash. He loves flying and old classic airplanes. He got "back on the horse" as soon as he could... he has 2 pretty high-tech artificial legs, and you'd never know it unless he wears shorts. He flies regularly (taildraggers) and does all kinds of other activities that most people never do. He was featured in an article in Sport Aviation with his Hatz biplane awhile back. He's an inspiration, like I know you will be too... hell, you already are. Heal well, and whatever happens I know you'll have a good life and will continue to enjoy and do things that most people in this world will never experience.

    Nikk,
    Great to see you vertical. Hang in there and keep moving. The more you move the better you will get. You will back at it in no time.

    Not really much of a comparable situation, but I knew a guy who flipped over on landing (with a Thorp T-18). He and a passenger were OK, but they couldn't get out (sliding canopy), and as soon as the rescue people got there they immediately attacked the airplane with "The Jaws", despite the pilot yelling and pleading with them to just get a couple of people to lift the tail up so they could get out. They completely destroyed the airplane, which had relatively minor damage before the "rescue".
    It's not a terrible idea to keep one of these (https://www.midwayusa.com/product/10...r-handle-green) handy.
