This is something that you don't see everyday. The Pipers left wing tie-down snapped in 70+ MPH winds during a severe winter storm that swept over Cape Cod. And this is the result, not pretty. The underlying Cessna is 172M Skyhawk N13552 (cn 17262844). Actually, both planes flew again.

Good news, N13552 lives on! I just got back from doing some spotting at my home airport of KPYM and while I was sitting on the deck enjoying the view this good ole N172 landed and taxied over to the terminal! I can't believe she's still flying after that accident!
