Just wondering who has had their plane damaged by means outside your control. Personally I have had my plane damaged 2 times in 20+ years by means outside my control. The first time a porta potty came loose during a wind storm and hit the right wing tip. Damaged the wing tip. I replaced the wing tip and the company providing the porta Potty service reimbursed me. The second time my plane was damaged an airport snow plow caught the rear tie down rope with the blade. It buckled a rear fuselage skin. The skin was replaced. Repairs paid for by the airport. Plane was down 6 months.. I did 90% of the work and charged $40/hr for labor. Cost of repairs were almost 1/2 the value of the plane $13,500. 74 Beech B-19 Sport valued around $28,000. I most likely could have had the plane totaled but I could not see the Sport being scrapped.. Who has had damage from out side sources and how were the repairs reconciled?
