You're right.  Best skid mark or divot  ;D

Oh, and those Hazelton's do set a fine example.  They make an art of smearing a perfectly good model across the runway.  Anything for the coveted "Best Crash Award"    :D

Executive summary. 

It is the SPLAT! that counts.  Think "Debris field"

I believe the rule was to be nominated to the crash of the year, there should be the evidence of the "Awesomeness" of the crash.
I nominate Michael's Cub crash, with supporting evidence.

Hi Vladim: Are you sure this is a video of Michael’s cub? I thought his cub was bigger and there was way more damage when it crashed. Just wondering.

I would love to say that wasn't my Cub, but it is.

1/5th scale built up and highly customized, and won an award in Kingston for best covering.

The damage from that crash was extensive!
Fuselage broken in half, both wings tips smashed a good 12 inches in, and the center wing was smashed.

I'm still repairing it (that's why I haven't started any new building projects).

The good news is that progress is being made, and I just bought new Monokote, as I'm almost ready to cover the repairs.

It will fly next season.

Michael certainly put on an evocative show for the traffic on Stouffville Road at the annual Fun Fly!  Anyone can crash into the ground, but nailing a power line, now THAT takes real skill worthy of the Crash of the Year Award!  :'(

As a result of Andy's latest post I have changed my vote is now for Michael.  Who else can precisely chop a wing to contribute to two separate crashes.  Now that takes skill.  ;D
