What are The Odds?

Death by falling airplane more likely in north Vegas

by , Aug 29, 2008 | 6:01 am

It was a tragedy earlier this week when a small plane crashed into a North Las Vegas home, killing three people. Another one fell out of the sky yesterday, killing the pilot. This one crashed into a home near Jones and Cheyenne (a few blocks from where the Michalski grandparents used to live) and also took off from the North Las Vegas Airport. Seriously, two small-aircraft crashes (into homes) in one week, both flights originating from the 63rd busiest airport in America? That’s just not right.

    Holy crap!! We always saw planes not too far from Grandma and Grandpa’s. Maybe Grandma moved away from NLV airport just in time.

    Did you go to Fiesta or Texas station to see if the over on landings that miss the runway has been reached?

    (And don’t get all PC on me. I know it’s sad whenever anyone gets unexpectedly killed or injured.)

    And to everyone reading, have a safe and happy holiday. Seriously. But have fun, too.
