    It is somewhat frightening to think it could literally have happened anywhere. But then it is as rare as well. It is a tragedy for that poor family on the ground.

    Yikes! Damn, that sucks. Six lives lost in a blink of an eye. What a terrible event.

      6 lives can be lost on the blink of an eye in a road vehicle, and many die on a regular basis in road accidents. If that were the case for private jet accidents, we wouldn’t blink an eye at this kind of story. They’re *all* “terrible events”

      The loss of lives is sad and regrettable; however perspective is a great leveler.

      (PS: I’m all for making all forms of transport safer)

      A mother and two children in the home . I suppose there was a husband and a father too .Just try to explain him that there is a reason to live. Six lives lost but God knows how many families destroyed.

    Not to be paranoid, Steve, but … … … it might have been a DRONE, slightly off track.

    [No, the situation is not funny, but these times call for an expanded sense of the “possible”]

    Keep your eyes wide open when cycling, either in MD or CO

    • Robertv says:

      Yep, what they tell us is not always (nearly never) the truth and we know governments don’t care about human lives.

      We know who these people were ?

      But of course ‘Why Bother’.

      Curious that you have a direct metro connection to the White House !

    God spared you for a reason, obviously. It could have been you. Jesus.

    FAA records show the same Michael Rosenberg crashed a small plane while landing at the same airport on March 1, 2010.

    In describing the crash site, Sumwalt said, “The main part of fuselage is rested up against the second house, with the tail of the airplane actually at the front door of that house, and then finally it appears that one of the wings was catapulted over into the third house where the majority of the fire damage occurred.

    Enough. When are we going to stop these mass killings and ban these dangerous planes?
    If it saves one life, it’s worth it.
