Failure to comply with Flight Crew instructions is a federal offense. $10,000 fine. EVERYONE that publishes videos to YouTube from non-event aircraft (let alone incident/accident aircraft) looking for their "fifteen minutes of fame" should be prosecuted and fined.
The LGA wreck was a bad deal. I am so thankful that nobody was hurt. I wish I could discuss it in more detail, but I really would be risking my career. You can already go to the NTSB website for preliminary updates to their investigation (a practice that has only recently been implemented, and a practice I WHOLLY disagree with).
The aircraft damage is substantial. Nose gear trunion sheared and the strut was driven up into the electronics equipment bay (bending the equipment racks at almost a 90 degree angle). There is talk of the keel beam of the aircraft being broken, in which case it would be a total hull loss.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.
There's so much I like about this video..
He's wearing a collectable A-9 WWII helmet with original AN6530 goggles ( they alone are worth $250 ), flying a 450hp Stearman, and 'hand propping' it ! .. and making a living with a Stearman with a radial engine ( no turbine ) dusting, ... rag wing and steel tubing,( no quick remove panels and stainless steel for corrosion control ),... no turn-over roll bar or wire cutters on the plane! ... no positive pressure cockpit, or respirator, ( chok'n on poison ) ... or even a face shield or rubber gloves while mixing chemicals,... just some guy getting covered in over-spray with a old umbrella for spotting ( no Crophawk - GPS ), and a old dusting airport with Stearman parts scattered about .. hard to believe this type of flying still can exist . cool ! ...
