Oh, The Humanity!!1! Wash State Porta-Potty Disaster.
Outhouses cushion small plane crash in Wash state

<snip>

"A small airplane dropping from the sky after its engine failed wound up on a cushioning bunch of portable toilets - and the pilot was able to walk away apparently unhurt.

Gary Mayor of the Federal Aviation Administration says the Cessna 182 crashed Friday afternoon in Washington state after taking off from Thun Field, an airfield owned by Pierce County southeast of Tacoma.

Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says the plane was about 150 feet in the air when the engine quit.

Troyer told The News Tribune that the pilot tried to turn around to land but didn't quite make it.

The plane hit a fence, flipped over and landed upside down on top of the portable toilets standing in a storage yard."

3. Are they SURE it was a
'storage yard' and not a Freeper rally? After all, they appear pretty much the same.

Until I see some photos of the incident with NO misspelled placards in the background, I won't be entirely convinced.

I don't think this could be a Freeper rally... Freepers would need a whole lot more. ;)



Link to the article where this was found: http://www.komonews.com/news/local/44194137.html There's a video as well.

Thank goodness it sounds like no one was hurt. It's amazing that the pilot was able to walk away... dang but he was very lucky.
