One TOUGH SR22

You have to admit that tumbling end over end is a helluva test of an aircraft... especially when all those within the airframe, at impact, get to escape the accident with their lives and surprisingly minimal injuries. Registered, currently, to Alex Mesa of Winston Salem, North Carolina, this aircraft used to be the personal steed of none other than Cirrus Design CEO Alan Klapmeier and is featured in a number of Cirrus promo photos. It's obviously ONE TOUGH BIRD.
