    Someone needs to take away Grandpa Harrison's pilot's license.

    Between the damage to the golf course and the response from police and EMT/fire, how many millions in damage did he just cost everyone? I suppose he has the money to cover it, but what if he had flown into a house and killed a family or something?

    He should demand a refund from the JFK Jr. School of Aeronautics.

    the first step towards not drawing more attention to it is making another thread about it

    If it turns out to be pilot error I agree. Most likely it was just an engine malfunction and that shit can happen to anyone. The bottom line is he put it down away from any people on the ground and lived which isn't very easy to do.

    Looks like it happened right after takeoff which could possibly mean it was a fuel related problem. Water in the fuel type shit. :grad:

    That would be a pretty major oversight.
