In search of pic - damaged fuselage from premature deployment

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

For Safety Day I'm looking for a well known picture.  It is of damage to a fuselage that resulted when a jumper had a premature deployment in the plane.  The canopy exited the plane and took the jumper with it.  The jumper died and the fuselage looked like a huge can opener had opened it up.  If anybody can help me out I would appreciate it.  I've googled up a storm and failed to find the exact pic I'm thinking of.

Binary93 – That is not it, but I can definitely use it. Thank you. The damage I recall was even worse than in the picture you posted.

Gowlerk – That is not it either, but thank you for posting it. Even if I don't obtain the pic I'm thinking of, these 2 pics will get the message across.

These pics are eye openers for those not aware of what can happen. The pic I'm remembering is even more shocking. I seem to remember maybe 5 feet of ripped fuselage.
