Difficult to see fwd from a tail-dragger; she is not the first to run into something.

One thing is different, though, I don't remember the pictures of male crash-drivers including them in cocktail outfit. Perhaps the "opposite sex" do indeed have cause to complain; it's not like a bloke crashing would be thought of as "not done any favours" for us.
