News Flash - Hillary Clinton involved in air accident!

Subject: Aircraft Incident

DP- UPI- released two hours ago. Junior Senator Hillary Clinton of New York was flying cross-country last night on her private aircraft and was forced to make a emergency landing in southern Texas because of bad weather. She was unhurt and the National Transportation Safety Board officials have determined that pilot error was the major cause of the accident. The accident scene pictures including the wreckage of Hillary's aircraft have been released prior to being returned to upper New York State for major repairs. . .

NTSB officials have also indicated that the Junior Senator was not wearing the appropriate seat belt or safety restraints, was flying in IFR conditions while only having obtained a VFR, single engine land rating, and will be cited for those violations accordingly. NTSB officials also say the absence of a post crash fire was due to the lack of sufficient fuel on board to sustain flight. There were no on ground fatalities.

Looks pretty bad - do you think they can fix it or will it have to be scrapped?
