Back in the early days of Lehigh Acres -- before the road grid had been put in -- they used to fly over the land and drop sacks of flour to show land purchasers where their lots were.

It's just a bit of flour bombing. Pilots have been doing that for decades.

Classic case of how dangerous video games like Flight X cause people to act out their aggressions in real life. That or the fact this real life game has been going on for freaking ever.

What, though? Dropping a kilo of cocaine out of a low-flying DC-8?

Was he flying a Breda?
 
2012-07-06 10:30:15 PM  
Maybe he was a first timer and thought he needed ballast and when he finally figured out that ballast was a bad thing on an ultralight he dumped on the nearest place where he could see there were no bystanders.

Flour bombing is a fun hobby for a lot of pilots. There are even sanctioned competitions. This is nothing weird or out of the ordinary.

Seems to me like someone was just having fun and didn't think much about what exactly they were doing/where they were doing it.

Gyrfalcon: Dropping a kilo of cocaine out of a low-flying DC-8?


I think if you had a DC-8, you could transport quite a bit more than one kilo of coke. Also you'd probably have your own hangar, so you could just load it into trucks from there.

/or did I miss a reference to something?

If this is really a thing, they should put it to good use. Baker in the middle of the field with an oven. Guy drops flour from an ultralight. Firemen shoot water out of a hose from 100 yards away. A mortar filled with sugar explodes overhead. A thousand screaming marines launch eggs from bazookas.

Most extreme cake baking ever.

That sounds like fun. I think I'd rather dump it than drop it in the bag though.

Yep. The draw big targets on the ground and all that. Points for accuracy. It's about what you'd imagine. Lots of fun.

Just gotta be responsible and not ruin it for everyone.

I've heard of pilots putting an old car in a field and trying to bomb it with old bowling balls.

And I seem to recall a movie where they were conducting wargames and a plane dropped a flour bomb on a tank. Anyone?

I've thought about doing something similar a couple times but I feel that getting arrested and losing my license isn't worth it.
 
2012-07-06 11:40:59 PM  
They used to do this at airshows when I was a kid. You'd pay like 10 bucks to enter and you'd get a bag of flour and a pilot to take you up. There was a traffic cone in the field, closest bag of flour to the cone won. The pilot would say 'NOW' and you'd huck your bag.

Best I ever saw was an old piper cub without it's doors... Dude was flying dead slow and when the passenger dropped the bag it nailed the top of the cone.

No license losing necessary. I remember that specifically as one of the questions on my PPL written test, about the legalities of dropping things out of planes. As long as there is no risk of damage to people or property (like a bag of flour in the middle of an athletic field, provided it isn't in use at the time...), it's perfectly legal.

Clearly this is a terrorist attack upon gluten-sensitive children. Those responsible should be caught and sent to Twitmo.
