Shootout run, straight over, touched a sponson, launched again into the air, landed flat on the canopy! It was upside down probably 50-60' high before landing sideways on the canopy. Really bad crash!!! They were right side up when they finally came to rest.

Boat landed on the canopy, but ended up right side up.

and now you are an expert cat driver? 20 minutes after the accident, you don't even know if all survived, and you are calling driver error. Class act polesmoker!

just saw the wideo, they blew over ans spun it in verted like a frisbee comming down canopy first. Saw the fireboat leaving with one on a backboard in a litter. No frantic work being done so either there was no work left to be done or they are in good shape. hoping, praying for the latter.
