Excellent headline subby!

Bloody Virgin Islands would work as well.

That's what happens when you miss the landing strip.

Taint the hooha technically on the bottom too? Turn one over the longways next time you get a chance. You'll see.

So the Virgin Islands have been saddlebacked, eh?

Meh, plane go boom.

I'll bet any amount of money that it was the Sea Plane in Christiansted. It's a charter plane company that's run by a bunch of stoner kids.

I GET IT THE PLANE IS THE PENIS AND THE VIRGIN ISLANDS ARE A GIRL AND THE PENIS WENT INTO HER ANUS!

I'd take you up on it considering took off from the airport.
 
2009-10-29 07:41:19 PM  
Yup, Captain Al's charter. You're not too far off though mike. Seaborne also flies out of the airport now.

This headline = Officially more full of Weapons-Grade Awesome than the hi-def video of Boba Fett beating George Bush to death with a T Rex femur to an all-Scorpions soundtrack.

It would be just incredibly awesome if the plane was owned by Richard Branson's company.

I bet someone here thinks you sound fat.

(I also bet that for the purposes of a defamation tort action, it is not material whether or not the statements made were factual.)

Exactly how many companies did you say offer Sea Planes for charter in Christiansted ?

It went down not far from here in a pasture just east of the Universities agriculture station.
All I've heard so far was that it was a private aircraft with a student pilot, a national guard member, and a local business owner. The emergency services and NTSB were on the scene almost immediately but there was nothing to be done.

An airport firetruck mowed through a barbed wire fence to get to the site, which ain't much more than a smoldering heap. There's goats all over the freeway... its just a mess.

//lots of goats.

The man piloting the plane was a close personal friend and one of the better people I've known in my life.

It's a real tragedy here on St. Croix.

David Bentley, you'll be missed.

Naming it after a Tuskegee airman seemed fitting at the time.

Actually this accident seems to be an eerie replay of a civil air patrol crash that happened some years ago just up the road.
I wager the TSA is gonna take it as another open excuse to go nuts searching unrelated aircraft and passengers. Glad I don't have to go through the airport anytime soon.

way south,
Where the Tuskegee airman flying out of St. Croix?

Ah hell. Skip it.
