Since I was soon to leave Los Alamos for flight school, I had Dad trailer Chile back to St. Louis. I planned on double-decking Scout and the 15P on the tandem-axle trailer as I had done before. Unfortunately, Scout's bow eye tie-down parted on the way home and performed a back-flip off the trailer at 70mph and landed upside-down on the thankfully deserted two-lane highway.
