first time this has happened to us besides my aero ace a couple times, but today I told my dad to come in low for a flyby so I could get it on film. He did but as he went to pull up a crosswind pushed him left towards the trees.

Well, he knicked the first one and got stuck in the second.

here it is

haha..well yesterday after it happened I got on my hands and knees and he stepped on my back and climbed on up and got it down. His shoes started to slip off my back as he climbed up so today it kinda hurts but atleast we got it back!

You know there is this wonderful invention made of two parallel beams with multiple cross beams between them about 12 to 16 inches apart. Some of them fold and some of them are just straight.

If you go to Lowe's for example, and ask for.....................................ladders, they will help you save your back from footprints.:tc:

haha..yeah, but the strykers take up the trunk and back seat so there isnt much room for a ladder!

and my back will be fine, just a big scrape and a bruise but its all good :)
