Bill,
was the aircraft badly damaged or did it suffer substantial damages??
The first means it's not going to fly at all or for the next few months, the second that it might take one or two weeks to repair.
Looking at the pic and video it looks like it could be back in service in 10 to 14 days.

Just as the comic book guy said about that info-"There is no emoticom for what I'm feeling!" That is sick, and it looks like it got burned on the tip like a bottle rocket.
