I’m sporting a new look this summer. It’s due to a little mishap pulling my Tri-Pacer out of the hangar for washing.
Here’s a helpful towing tip: Always, always make sure the tow bar is locked and secure before you start. I was pulling, and the plane was rolling, when the tow bar popped out. I flew backwards, falling on my patootie and wrist.
Oh. And here’s another tip. Don’t wait a month before getting a hurting wrist checked out. What I thought was a bruise is really a crack.
Now, I’m hoping I can still get the airplane started. The starter is located under the left side of the seat, and the cast is on my left hand.
