I spent about 20 minutes combing through the NTSB daatbase to try and find
the aviation incident but came up null. But there are similar stories of
Sun "big iron" being tipped poorly (specifically an SF15k) which "fell" and
went back to Sun. Placed into a lab it started right up without issue. I
believe it become one of the systems used for Sun Education/training
