Insurance Claim, A Bunch Of Bull
A couple of British pilots have a load of bull to give their insurance
carrier and they're not fooling around. Tony Cooper and Lisa Kingscott's
vintage Auster J1N airplane suffered about $18,000 in damage earlier this
month when some young bulls developed a taste for the fabric covering. The
bullocks ate a large section of the 1946 aircraft's fuselage. "I was
speechless. I've never seen anything like it," Kingscott told the Daily
Mail. Kingscott and Cooper, who own the plane with three others, have
always landed in the same field on their frequent visits to Herfordshire
(where else?) to see friends. Maybe not anymore. They didn't pay any
attention to the bulls on the latest visit and went off to have lunch.
Instead of flying home, they had to dismantle the aircraft and take it away
on a trailer. A farm group spokesman told the Daily Mail he's not surprised
by the incident. "Cattle are very inquisitive and would certainly have gone
to the plane and sniffed it, then licked it," said Ian Johnson, spokesman
for the National Farmers' Union. "Clearly there was something in the
construction that appealed to their taste buds."
