Plane & Simple

It's one of those "Some people...!" stories:

What spices up a dull workday more than an airplane unexpectedly landing on your golf course? Nothin', that's what.

Long story short, a Rich White Teen was running late for his tennis tournament in Rich North Suburb during rush hour, so Rich White Father decided to fly over the traffic, ripping up 900 feet of snow-covered golf course. The picture (right) was taken atop a Busy State Route. Had he skidded 20 more feet, he would have slid down a 15-foot decline, flipped the plane, & crashed into a brick wall.

No, he didn't have clearance to land on our property.
No one was hurt.
Yes, he was pissed when he was arrested.
And yes, he was confused as to why he was being arrested.

"It's winter; it's not like anyone was golfing."

Four hours, 3 police cars, 2 fire engines, & 1 crane/flatbed combo later, Rich White Father's plane was dismantled enough to lift it upon said flatbed & impound it until further notice.
