From the picture it doesn't look too bad. I bet the injury was a head hitting the dash. It was a little gusty yesterday, and the temps wouldn't help with lift at all. But hey, any landing you can walk away from is a good one.

Judging by the "attitude" of the plane and the skid mark it looks like a ground loop. Glad everyone's not seriously injured.

I used to fly in the eary 1940's and know what it's like to crash a plane. my Mitsubishi 47 A6M2 had a bad landing gear and it caused me problems in Hawaii.
