Looks like someone went psycho on this persons'
plane with a fancy can opener or chop saw.Wonder
what they did to deserve that.

I remember seeing this photo a couple of years ago. The plane was up for auction on eBay buy a guy with an angry ex-wife. Apparently he wouldn’t let her get breast implants and instead bought the plane. She got mad and went out to the airport with a chainsaw and the picture you see was supposedly the result.

Another variation of the story said someone else was hand-propping their plane without someone at the controls, the engine started, and the plane started rolling forward into another plane where the propeller shredded the fuselage.

I am afraid the second myth was the right one. This plane was damaged by another’s propeller when it lost control on the tarmac, slicing into the University plane. It happened in Adelaide, Australia at Parafield Airport. We all had a good laugh here when we saw it in the paper. As for the chainsaw version, well… makes a good story that anyone will believe.

you a liar but it looks like to precise of cuts

20622 - If you'd seen the Mythbusters episode you would have seen them do it on TV with another plane. Yes it was really done by a prop.
