  Just came back from Sun N'Fun and read the preliminary report here about

Word has it in the Performer's Tent that upon landing, Charlie's right brake
hung up and he tried to correct with the left one . The tail came off the
ground and he then planted it again. But it got away again and flipped. All
this started at approximately 20 M.P.H. !

Such a freak accident.
