Got an email from Paul this morning (Eastern Time). Said his Starduster was totaled and that he had many stitches in his forehead but that other than being shaken up, he was he is OK.

I had asked him some qustions about his radial engine and he said that he would get back to me within 3 days. He obviously has his computer running - so that is good news.

I hate hearing that, but I'm glad he's OK.

Agreed, prayers for a quick recovery and a quick return to aircraft (Starduster) ownership and flying is called for.

Thanks for the heads up!

It's good to hear that Paul is alright. A real shame about his plane though. At least she held together, landing in some very rough looking terrian. So that Paul was able to walk away with just stitches. You can't really ask more than that, if faced with having to make a forced landing.

It's a different Bend Oregon. (Not the one in Central Oregon where you live.)

(North Bend Oregon) is on the coast of Oregon, about a third of the way up from California. Near Coo Bay.

Hey Mike is you caps lock button stuck?

Well, I had posted this link earlier, then pulled it back out to afford a little bit of privacy, but since I see other links popping up here and there, I guess I'll repost it.

Bruce, Paul,

At least there is one friendly thing about Clear Cut logging - it yields an area for forced landing. But boy do those stumps and snags create issues. Here in the Florida panhandle we have silviculture activities which leave lovely level landing sites filled with piles of snags and brush which can do serious harm on landing.

Congratutlations Paul on walking away from yours. It looks like you will have a salvageable plane if you can get it home without doing too much addt'l damage. As you look it over you will find it ain't pretty but it is much easier to restore than to start over fresh again.

And again, happy to have you amongst the walking!!

Hi guys, I have been trying to post a reply since the aircraft event. (read crash) I have not been able to post. I do have a picture collection on the biplane forum of the mishap. I am doing well with a nice forehead scar and some sore spots. Add to that a broken heart. Thanks for your support.
