Wild Shot
2002 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

(25 March 2002, Montana) Another gem from the FAA accident reports: A pilot and his passenger were hunting coyotes from the air, when the passenger accidentally discharged his shotgun into the right wing of the aircraft, causing the plane to crash. The two hunters were injured, but survived, as did the fortunate coyote.
