Sternal Fractures often occur from blunt trauma to the chest, including
being thrown against a seat belt. Theses are more common in older patients
because the bones are less flexible. The main worry is not the fracture
itself, but possible damage to the Myocardium (heart muscle) under the
sternum. Most patients are admitted to the hospital for 1 - 2 days
observation due to the risk of heart problems including arrhythmias. Most
patients recover without major problems even if they have initial
arrhythmias, but it depends somewhat on the underlying cardio-thoracic
damage. Reference:

Phil has a busted sternum.
I am really puzzled by this ... considering the shoulder belts in a Q.

It takes a LOT of force to break someone's sternum.
Usually the villain is a steering wheel.

True, the belt hard point could have moved, leading me to wonder if
the plane had some kind of aux mounting for a GPS unit ... or the angle
of impact, coupled with moving "hard points" could mean he hit the
center stick as his body folded in toward the middle ... if there were
no other mounting post in his path.

Like every one else, I was concerned for their survival, and relieved their
condition is no worse.

Thank God they're going to be OK.

Actually, a busted sternum isn't surprising to me - we had a local ultra-light driver 'pancake' a KOLB ultra-light on a forced approach here last summer - besides some spinal injury he also suffered a broken sternum and was fully restrained by a 4 point harness - neither his chest nor any of his upper body collided with anything in the cockpit. It leads to me to believe that the high G force of the sudden stop coupled with the geometry of the harness causes some severe multiple stresses on the old skeleton...

I am so sad to hear about Phil and Cherie but am relieved that the consequences were not worse. I met Phil for the first time just a few short days ago at Oshkosh and it was such a pleasure speaking with him. I wish the best for them in a speedy recovery.

Guys,

I talked with Phil about 30 minutes ago. He wanted me to let you
all
know both he and Cherie are OK but badly banged up, sore and
scratched. Phil has a busted sternum. Cherie is sleeping at
present.
His brothers are with them. they are at Kern County Medical
Center
near Bakersfield, CA.

Phil's Amar Demuth prop seperated the airplane at 9500'. About
75%
was left when he shut the engine down. He set up for a glide
about 11
miles out but was about 30' short when he made contact. The
plane
took out about 160' of fence then went inverted after contacting
the
runway, the canard seperated and the canopy busted loose as they
were
sliding upside down. It is totaled, I believe. They both escaped
and
no fire was seen.

Had the accident happened 30 minutes earlier it would have been
a
different story. They were direct from Wenover, UT to Southern
Cal
when this happened, (very treacherous territory). They are both
very
lucky and I for one will say another prayer for them both when I
finish this e-mail.

Re: Propellor pains

David J. Gall
 

How about a GSC or Powerfin? They both have better airfoils than the Warp Drive or Ivoprop, so should give results more like a custom wood prop would give. I once flew another brand of airplane using a Precision Propellers ground adjustable prop and it flew 8-10 mph faster than with an in-flight adjustable Ivoprop. My rumor patrol tells me that the Powerfin blade profile is a copy of a Craig Catto design....

One in
the staging area and one while sitting on the runway right before

off. He was #13 and I was #14 on the fly-by.

Subject: Re: [Q-LIST] Re: Update on Phil Lankford

I just got a call for a local Delano CA resident who is an EAA member. He
recognized the wreck a/c as a Quickie and found our web site and then found
my number. 1st he wanted to know if I had heard about the accident. Then he
brought up some good points. He thought maybe one of our group nearby could
help get the plane moved to a secure location.

Now I have no idea if the investigation is done, but the plane is sitting
where someone could get to it. I'm thinking that some opportunistic kind of
person might eye the avionics in the plane.

Is there anyone in CA that might be able to help in this matter? I first
thought that Phil's family might take care of this, but they will be more
concerned about Phil & Cheri. I have this local resident phone # to call him
back if necessary. Maybe the local EAA chapter could help.

Any suggestions? I'm new at this, do these things take care of themselves or
do we need to help?

Guys,

I talked with Phil about 30 minutes ago. He wanted me to let you all
know both he and Cherie are OK but badly banged up, sore and
scratched. Phil has a busted sternum. Cherie is sleeping at present.
His brothers are with them. they are at Kern County Medical Center
near Bakersfield, CA.

Phil's Amar Demuth prop seperated the airplane at 9500'. About 75%
was left when he shut the engine down. He set up for a glide about 11
miles out but was about 30' short when he made contact. The plane
took out about 160' of fence then went inverted after contacting the
runway, the canard seperated and the canopy busted loose as they were
sliding upside down. It is totaled, I believe. They both escaped and
no fire was seen.

Had the accident happened 30 minutes earlier it would have been a
different story. They were direct from Wenover, UT to Southern Cal
when this happened, (very treacherous territory). They are both very
lucky and I for one will say another prayer for them both when I
finish this e-mail.

Re: Update on Phil Lankford

Jim

Phil has a busted sternum.
I am really puzzled by this ... considering the shoulder belts in a Q.

It takes a LOT of force to break someone's sternum.
Usually the villain is a steering wheel.

True, the belt hard point could have moved, leading me to wonder if
the plane had some kind of aux mounting for a GPS unit ... or the angle
of impact, coupled with moving "hard points" could mean he hit the
center stick as his body folded in toward the middle ... if there were
no other mounting post in his path.

Like every one else, I was concerned for their survival, and relieved their
condition is no worse.
