This was posted somewhere else. Actually, it was the result of a run-away plane that did the honey-baked ham routine on the plane pictured with its prop.Still a pretty good story though. Happened in Australia. Colin

Sorry dude - interesting story, but that isn't what happened. It was a runaway aircraft - no pilot behind the controls, that ate that bird. I read about this specific plane (with pictures) in the Canadian Aviation Safety mag we get with AIP updates every few months.Look at how regularly spaced the cuts are - if you knew the rpm setting you could calculate the speed easily!

That's an imaginative story twist!When these photos were originally released it was a ground collision with another prop aircraft that caused the damage.

Terry, this story has been floating around a lot lately. I don't know why, but it is bogus. The real story behind this picture in far from a jealous mate. This incident involved a pilot of a large twin turbo prop aircraft failing to stop in time or something like that. I think it would be impossible for someone with a chainsaw to cut into a plane's structure with such precision and symetry from top to bottom.A co-worker recently sent the same story to me.Regards,P.S. I see above that it was a runaway aircraft that caused the damage. Still a funny picture though. I hope no one was hurt.
