I'm glad no one was seriously injured, but I'm also glad this prick crashed!! For the past two years, everytime their is a nice day, he has been flying over my house at low altitude every 7 minutes (Yes, I timed him).
I know I moved close to an airport 30 years ago, and I haven't minded it until this prick came along. Hopefully now he will give it up, or the airport will give him a new flight plan.....
