I posted a photo on here. The damage was substantial. The right main gear leg penetrated the firewall, the left stab was ripped off, and the wing carry-thru shifted and bent. The money spent to re-build the airplane would not substantiate any means to make the gal airworthy again. They have another Helio that is further along that will go online. The only salvage worth noting is the Lycoming GO-480 which was unscathed, one blade was bent.
