Another Airshow Disaster

Unread postby KlausNW » Wed Sep 14, 2016 12:33 am

Air Show Disaster at West ZWICK'S ISLAND PARK,



This is tough to watch.

It shows the dangers of attending these events.

Amazing photo below shows great detail.

The pilot at low level had no control over his aircraft.

It narrowly misses a crowd gathered for the air show

and then slams into four buildings.

One can only imagine the horror of the survivors inside those buildings.

No one was killed, but it probably scared the shit out of them. :shtf:

Flying a Hot Air Baloon into a bunch of Porta Potties surely qualifies as a act of aggression, rarely seen before and probably not ever after! If there wasn't a full fledged NTSB investigation and no TSA/ DHS interrogation, this person is probably still out there terrorizing peaceful shitters.

Unbelievable, folks!

Made me think of a time years ago when a couple guys thought a friend was inside a porta-potty and they went over and rocked it back and forth and beat on the sides and then ran away.

A couple minutes later a lady who nobody knew emerged from that facility with a very angry look on her face. It was hard to look innocent and not laugh at the same time, but we all managed to do it as we blended into the crowd.

I admit I fell for that headline hook, line, and sinker. Somehow the browser page was set up perfectly so I could read the text but not see the picture. Good for a morning laugh... ;)
