...um, you're a bright guy so we'll assume you meant this as a funny. However, in Mr. Nadler's case as I recall he came real close and fortunately lived to tell his tail.


I think you mean he saved his tail so he could tell his tale.


You just have to watch out for that canopy. He nearly cooked his Goose.

That is what the Piggott hook is for: to keep you from being knocked on the noggin by the departing canopy. Unfortunately, we have no idea what knocked Dave out.

Credit where credit is due, the Roeger hook is for the canopy, a Piggott hook is for the airbrakes.
