Aircraft on Ramp Update

I received a text and a couple of emails about the Cessna 441 that I had posted pictures of, nose down, on the ramp here at Ocean City.

When I went flying yesterday I noticed the plane was sitting in her proper stance and the props were gone. Of course I had to take a closer look and noticed the engine nacelles are sealed up in plastic. Not only is she on her feet but the props and engines are out. There looked to be some runway rash under her nose, but, i didn't get out of my vehicle to get any closer. I can only imagine the expen$ive repair bill for this beautiful aircraft.

I'm sure it was a heck of a ride when the gear collapsed. Good job on the pilot for keeping all on board safe, and keeping the plane on the runway.
