Ya, i think i would go out and buy some lottery tickets if I was them.


One of our logging 61's was hit by lightning up at Indian Arm in the early 80's while inflight. Fried out the A/C gens and a bunch of other A/C stuff. Hit one of the blades, and travelled through the head/tranny/airframe and exited out the tailwheel houseing...........that was expensive!!!!!!
