Is that a sawzall laying on the wing?


I think it is, Tom. Standard fare for salvage crews that don't know how to properly remove wings.

And, Richard, if there is no trailer mentioned, there is no trailer being sold with the salvage of the airplane. I have seen only one listing where the trailer was included. Like Hank, I have paid more for the trailer than the salvage. Mainly because the plane and trailer were in Oregon, and a friend was willing to hook it up and bring it home for me, so I bought the trailer. It was good to keep the Jiran Set together, too.

Accident report for N106NS. Unfortunately a fatality.



On July 6, 2019, about 1330 central daylight time, a Grob G103 glider, N106NS, impacted terrain during an off-field landing near Brandon, Mississippi. The pilot and sole occupant received fatal injuries and the glider was substantially damaged. The glider was registered to the Central Mississippi Soaring Society, LLC and operated by a private individual. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 flight. The flight originated from the Woodbridge airport (6MS1) about 1315 and was en route to the Harrell Field airport (MS08).

According to the tow pilot, the purpose was to move two gliders from 6MS1 where the gliders are hangared, to MS08, where the flights are typically conducted. He towed the first glider to 2,000 ft agl southeast of 6MS1, where the glider released from the tow plane. The tow pilot then returned to 6MS1 for the second glider. The glider pilot previously stated to the tow pilot that he would release at 3,000 ft agl. The tow pilot added that the second tow was slow due to the glider's weight, high temperature, and high-density altitude at the time. About 2,100 agl, the glider released from the tow plane. The tow pilot stated that this was in same area that the first glider released. He didn't see or hear from the glider pilot again.

The pilot in the first glider reported that he heard the accident pilot on the radio, stating that, 'he was getting low, and would probably have to land out'.

The wreckage was located in a fenced field about two-and-half miles southeast of 6MS1, and about 6 miles southwest of MS08. The glider was examined on site, and all major components were accounted for at the scene. The glider came to rest inverted, about 150 ft beyond an oak tree that was in the field. A piece of the glider's right-wing skin was found in a branch of the oak tree, about 25 to 30 ft up from the ground. Several small branches and leaves were on the ground, just beneath the branch. Additionally, there were several impact signatures on parts of the branch near the wing skin; the signatures and ground scars are consistent with the glider colliding with tree, before impacting terrain.
