Default Prayer request for Dargo's father, injured in light plane crash

Dargo's dad was involved in a light plane crash and is in pretty rough shape. I don't have all the details but I've seen images of what is left of the wreckage of his ultra-light. The plane looked more like a pancake than an aircraft. Its pretty much a miracle that his dad survived the crash, he's in intensive care and among many other injuries it appears that he has a broken back, broken ribs, other borken bones around his body and various internal injuries too.

You may want to take a few moments to send some kind thoughts to Brent's family in this time of stress while his father begins a long road to recovery.

Default Re: Prayer request for Dargo's father, injured in light plane crash

Thanks all. I really appreciate your kind words. I just came home for a quick break before I go back to the hospital. He is still in intensive care and not a very happy camper after being placed in a "turtle shell" brace after his back surgery yesterday. The FAA has allowed me to store what is left of his aircraft in my barn so it will be out of the weather as they continue their investigation.

They first wrote it off to "pilot inexperience and pilot error". However, after closer investigation, it looks like one blade on the two bladed prop cracked and about a 2" piece broke off of the end of it in flight. It appears as if that piece cut the cable controlling the flap on the right wing as it passed through the wing. The aircraft would have been shaking violently and impossible to control I'm told. The prop is a "Warp Speed" brand which is generally considered a high quality prop. The investigation continues.

The plane can be replaced, Dad can't.
It's encouraging that he made it through the surgery, Brent.
Speedy recovery to him!
