Plane Crashes into House Near Seaside, Oregon

Three killed and three burned at house; pilot and passenger dead. Article

Do we really need people renting planes and crashing them into innocent people’s homes?
People in Small Planes Dropping Like Flies from the Skies, Continued….
UPDATE My condolences to the Masoudi, Reimann, and Johnson families.

Flying for sport because one has the money to do so is turning out to be a deadly pursuit. When will they ever learn? Few people on earth are qualified to fly, to take so much responsibility for life, limb and property into their own hands. Come to think of it, when was the last time anyone saw a crashed UFO–1947?

There are too many variables involved in flying a private or rented plane: human errata, mechanical failure, weather, drunkenness, and stupidity.

UPDATE: The pilot took off in the fog, crashed into a tree, and then into the Johnson/Reimann/Masoudi house. The TSA will NOT release the actual cause of the crash until a year from now!

Update: a small plane crashed in Colorado last week, killing its five occupants.

Eight People Die in Minnesota Small Plane Crash

There they go again.

Going, going…GONE.
It’s so much safer to do business over the internet!
This sort of junket, though for legitimate business, seems unnecessarily wasteful, and now it has proven to be the ultimate waste. This is very tragic, but, like Senator Paul Wellstone’s flight to the Great Beyond (God spare us another such event), the great loss of human life could have been avoided. How about a virtual meeting that doesn’t waste both fossil fuel and people?

Small Plane Crash in Florida Kills Five

Taking yourself out this way is one thing, but destroying property and uninvolved people on the ground is quite another….

We hear about these incidents way too often. Not only luminaries like JFK Jr. and Senator Wellstone do it, but those of whom we’ve never heard–good people who are trusting, and whose faith in the process is based on very little reality when it comes to traveling with amateur pilots in little private planes. The latest tragedy is a group of dissident Russian Orthodox people in Alaska (Alaska has a large population of eastern orthodox immigrants and now second-generation members, due to its proximity to Russia).

I’ve spent hours in the past writing about this sort of tragedy on the internet. Is it so important to get somewhere quickly–that you would risk your life willingly?
Here is the article about those lost in the aforementioned crash, from FNC.

A few years ago in Southern New Jersey, a woman entered her garage and found a limb from a small-plane passenger on top of her car. There were several houses laid to waste in that accident. Luckily, no one on the ground was injured. That’s not always the case, as private property and human life are often destroyed by such crashes.

About ten years ago, a whole Princeton family, including their children who lived in Colorado, was killed flying in the Caribbean. The pilot was the father–someone whom I knew; his wife was spared because she did not go on the flight. People in two states were devastated over the lost family and friends.

Why do I have such interest in the field of flight? My father has been an aerospace professional for 55 years, and has two patents on landing signal systems. Most of his work has involved designing space and defense projects. In his own words, my father’s “fingerprints are all over the Space Station fix”.
