Well, pass or fail?

I have always jacked on the frame right behind the rear tire with at least a foot long 2x4 to distribute the weight. This spring I jacked it up using my usual method and for safety sake set a jack stand behind the 2X4. While I was in the house my son decided he needed the jack a lot worse than I did and I found my poor Flagstaff hanging in the air with only the jack stand holding it up, well behind the tire. No damage at all though, I guess the frames on our ultralights are more robust than we think.
