OK, I can see the prop damage being the culprit; but HOLY CRAP, how long does it take to figure out you are chopping a damn plane in half?

That does suck!
I speak fron experience on this issue. My father had a single engine Beech Sierra that looked the same when he returned from his meeting! Only fron the front. didn't hurt the motor, but shredded all the wiring. Some guy had a dead battery on his Piper cub and had his wife/gf hold the brakes while he prop started it. Great idea, bad outcome. She did not hold the brakes and it finally stopped when it hit my dad's plane!
Actually, though it was a blessing in disguise. His insurance paid big money for the plane, and he bought a new twin engine Baron!! We still have the Baron today, 22 years later.
