I was called to cty by a student who had run a C152 into a fence. I was flown to cty by another instructor. The aircraft looked airworthy, as it had several scratches on the underside of the wing. There was a small hole in front of the spar, but the spar showed no damage. I flew the aircraft back to ocala, thinking the damage was too minor for a ferry permit. Arriving at ocf, our mechanics told me the wing would need to be replaced.
