No one inside either of the houses was injured, police said.

The plane landed upside down in the pond and will be removed by the National Transportation Safety Board, which will take over the crash investigation, police said.

The first dude is correct.

The second dude is Mr Snarky. That is his only talent when faced with the rules.

This must be a political crash. No names.

Whatever happened to the concept of an alternate airport?

At least they got out.

Something tells me the insurance company is not planning to to be generous.

Listening to the audio, DAB tower (and approach before that) pretty much TOLD them (without telling them, of course) “this is a really bad idea, fellas.” Not the first time we’ve heard of ATP’s defiance of weather conditions. Glad the we’re able to (more or less) walk away.
