Trike Accident


Recommended Posts

Last night one of the guys flying a trike managed to hit the top of a palm tree. His wing collapsed and the trike fell 30 feet to the ground hitting front wheel first and flipping onto its back. Luckily, the young boy who was a passenger walked away without injury and pilot only sustained minor cuts and abrasions. The trike itself sustained major damage but I'm convinced its design is what saved the pilot and passenger. How anyone walked away from it beats me. The trike is similar to the one shown in my album but I’m told was an American import.

The pilot was a novice and decided to fly without an instructor being present. Need I say more!
