Crash


 

Posted by Picasa
A private plane flew into the tow rope on a glider ascent yesterday in Boulder and brought down the tow plane and the private plane. The glider was able to disconnect and glide to the nearby Boulder airport. The crash is still under investigation so there are few details at this point. There were several eyewitnesses and many photos and videos of the event. The private plane was new and had a parachute attached to the aircraft that allowed it to float to earth very slowly. That is the good news. The bad news is that the plane was on fire as it floated to the ground. Persons on board were seen jumping from the plane before it came to the ground. It reminded me of the people jumping off the world's tallest building, the World Trade Center, just before it fell. I think I would hold on until the last minute. Others want to control their own destiny. Their own demise. Time will tell. Speaking of destiny. Yesterday in Spain a 16 year old boy fought six bulls at the same time, killing them all, to set a new world's record. I like sitting at my desk and reading about such things.
