They have moved the plane from the ice to an adjoining car park. It was blocking the main taxiway — so that makes a lot of sense.

I guess they are still waiting for the FAA to finish its investigation — and hopefully to get a new prop. That seems to be the only thing that got damaged. I have to suspect that a prop is not cheap. Plus most likely their insurance will go sky high.

Today’s installment of pictures. We had other things to do so I didn’t have much time. I shot these pictures from a different vantage — i.e., on the other side of the Bay. It was fairly busy. Tomorrow will be the BIG day. So, enjoy.

You can see the BENT prop on the far-side. The plane is held up on a trestle.

We drove by at 3:45pm hoping to take some pictures of planes to add to those that I took last Sunday.

This was the ONLY plane there was and I knew that it had had a mishap. It was all on its lonesome in the middle of the taxiway and you could clearly see that it was propped up. From past accidents, I assume they have to wait for a FAA (NTSB) inspector to come and check the accident and give the ‘all clear’.

When I got home I saw the ‘Union Leader’ post (above).

We have had more spectacular crashes in the past. See below.
