if i were the homeowner i would press charges against the idiot "pilot" and demand a throrough investigation by the police. from the "pilots" flip remarks made in the video before she took off she obviosly thought it was some sort of big joke. maybe child services should do an investigation too.

A friend of mine lives on Cobbetts Lake where the plane took off. He told me that the guy shown in video lives on the lake and just went to jail for multiple DWI's. The last one was in Windham on his moped. Guess who the passenger was on the back of his moped when he was arrested? Well it was the same chick that crashed the plane.

The FAA passed the "Sport Pilot" rule so people could fly these home made planes, but they didn't take into account the safety of the Non-Flying Public on the ground. The FAA is more concerned with creating more pilots than keeping us on the ground, safe. The FAA is doing what the AOPA wants them too. The AOPA and FAA are all pilots. AOPA=Lobbying Group for Pilots.FAA=Supposed to enforce laws. Check out www.STOPTHENOISE.org

Aviation accounts for about 11 percent of our economy. I doubt congress is going to care if some yuppie's sunday mimosa is disturbed by an airplane.

Who cares if aviation accounts for 11% of the economy, I think that's a lie anyway. These small planes are always flying in my neighborhood, very low, very noisy, can't even talk to a person if you're sitting next to him or her. If you want to have your windows open in the warm weather, forget it, you can't hear the TV, radio, or conversation. People that fly these planes in this manner are obnoxious a-holes and should be heavily fined. We even have stunt flyers from time to time, I wish there was a way to tell them that we're not impressed, we don't like it, fly somewhere else. I'm sure most of these idiots fly out of Nashua, they should be limited to Nashua airspace. Trash.

It sounds to me like she's not angry with the pilot, she's angry that there is no law against flying ultralight planes without a pilot's license/proper training,etc. Might I suggest a slingshot?
