I would hate to have that guy as my boss. No excuse would ever be good enough.

As Inspector Clouseau might say "It's a mere blemish"

I can imagine the guy at a meeting with stripes of carbon all over his face, jacket and tie messed up and half burnt, and the cloche still in its hand...

I do not think this guy is wearin' a tie! He flys a Maule....

Sam Walton didn't wear a tie and I believe he drove a decades old F-150 in this last years.

Remember when Burt Reynolds and Don Deluise landed a Maule on Main St and bought beer from the dime store?

What movie was that?

Any landing that you can walk away from is a good one

Proving the old saying that any landing you walk away from is a good landing.

Maybe he was flying under influence and thus avoided local authorities ?

The yoke would make a nice wall trophy hung up like deer antlers. The plaque would say Award to XXXXX for Perfect Meeting Attendance

Direct from the article "Later, he was taken to an airport where he had a truck and drove home." That must have been some pregnancy!?!

Oh my God It was a strong hit against the ground . Are you still alive?

Some CFI's teach two point landings, some teach 3 point. Those 6 point landings are a far more advanced technique.

How did he tear the ends of the wings in that manner? Did he hit some road signposts or power poles on the way down? Surely a simple ground loop wouldn't cause that much damage?
I had a buddy who carried out a forced landing in his PA-28 on a country highway in the mid-1980's. He was doing just fine until a large roadside sign appeared, which took one wing right off!

Went through an 8' diameter irrigation culvert on his runout?

It looks not unlike he cart-wheeled it.

It looks more like to me that he cartwheeled it, despite the repeated story that he ground-looped it.

The simple problem here, of course, is that despite having 10 days to notify the FAA of any aircraft crash; the local troopers and rescue people were greatly concerned that there was a possibility of the pilot and up to 3 pax lying injured and immobile somewhere, and in desperate need of medical care.
The FAA notification wasn't urgent - but notifying local police and rescue authorities that all occupants of the aircraft were O.K. and didn't need assistance, is simple common sense and an important part of any post-crash procedures.

Wonder if that power line had anything to do with the condition of the plane.

Pilot says to media, "he doesn't want to talk about what happened". I can understand that. LOL

"We spoke to the pilot earlier today and he said he doesn't want to talk about what happened." Go figure.
