No parachute and the plane's going down! What would MacGyver do?
The daring youth of today are more resourceful, bringing new tools to the Ham Radio mix such as micro-computers and "Maker" ingenuity.

A concept piece created for the cover of The Printed Circuit, Newsletter of the Tallahassee Amateur Radio Society ( k4tlh.net/tars-newsletter/ )
The character design and inking (via Micron pen) was done by my daughter Haleigh. You can see her work at: trapstepgirl.deviantart.com/
The coloring was done digitally by myself in Verve ( vervepainter.deviantart.com/ ) and we both shared in the layout and pencil sketch.

I admit this one is a little hard to follow, but basically, two kids are lone survivors trapped within a crippled airplane destined for doom, in a last ditch effort they cobble together a communications device to request assistance. Shown is the moment when at the will of chance they are either flung into oblivion or save the day with a TV-worthy story to tell.
