    Meh. She went with 'realistic'.
    I, myself, if I were in need of a prosthesis, would go with the bionic looking sort.
    It looks shorter than a real arm doesn't it?
    It doesn't look like it can be used for anything either.
    Since she has extra millions lying around, I wonder why she didn't go for something that wasn't just for looks?

    In this case, I don't have any problem with her suing. She did suffer some serious injuries, so it's not like she is pretending or suing for "emotional distress." Obviously those type of injuries are going to limit her modeling career, so there is a loss of future earnings. And why wasn't propeller turned off, as passengers were exiting the plane?
    Just my opinion

    Your point is moot.
    The 'accident' was her fault, not the pilots.
    She's the one that walked in front of the plane after being warned to walk along the wing when deplaning.
    She deserved $0.
    Frivolous lawsuit.
    True shame that she got any money at all.

    You must not have read up on all the facts of this jenny. Your take on it really surprised me. You're usually a no-bs poster.

    How did he warn her? All I see is that he claims he gestured. Who knows if she even understood what the gestures meant? Why was the propeller left on? There are lots of frivolous lawsuits, but with severity of the injuries this young woman suffered I don't see this one as frivolous.
    Just my opinion

    From http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headline...cident-report/
    The unidentified pilot, reported to be Curt Richmond of Frisco, Texas, says he extended his arm out to guide her away from the propeller, and told her to walk behind the airplane.
    Also:
    “Upon noticing that she was exiting in front of the strut, the pilot leaned out of his seat and placed his right hand and arm in front of her to divert her away from the front of the airplane and the propeller,” the report states. “He continued to keep his arm extended and told the passenger that she should walk behind the airplane.”
    ^ That's how she was warned, and it's FAR more than a 'gesture'. I take it him sticking his arm out was sort of like the 'mother's arm' in a car. Like he was holding her back from going around the front just like the 'mother's arm' hold's passenger's from being propelled forward in a car.

    From that same article.

    “The pilot of a bird like an Aviat Husky is going to in almost all cases shut the engine down completely and have the propeller stop, which happens almost immediately as soon as you shut it down,” ABC News Aviation Consultant John Nance explained in a Dec. 15 “GMA” report after the accident. “Because we know the danger of having a human being anywhere close to a twirling prop.”
    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headline...cident-report/

    So, sorry. It wasn't exactly unexpected that something like this could have happened. Why didn't he shut the engine down and have the propeller stop while people were getting on and off the plane?
    Even if he told her to go toward the back of the plane, she could have misunderstood or become disoriented. To me it sounds like a perfectly legit lawsuit.
    Just my opinion
