    wow, bad week to be in a small plane. 1 crashed on a highway in fl today, another crashed into a restaurant in Clayton, NC, Killing the pilot, and this one. Kinda crazy

    Very Bizarre, but it’s good that all survived.

    Yeah, it happened here in Chattanooga Wednesday night. The planes engines died a mile from the runway.

    BTW, the plane was still there the morning after so traffic was rerouted away from the block the plane landed on… Did I mention the road was 5 lanes wide? The commute was 20-30 minutes to downtown from East Brainerd/Collegedale area on Wednesday morning. On Thursday morning it was 2 hours.

    Stupid gravity!

    Onlookers are always pulling people out of the wreckage; it seems to be a habit and that worries me. I guess you can help them out if they’re trying to get out on their own, but you shouldn’t move anyone who might have broken bones unless they’re in immediate danger.

    See, shopping is dangerous. Everyone should stay home and sew their own clothes and bake their own bread! Stomp their own grapes and ferment their own wine. Stay out of shopping center parking lots, IOW.
