I just got back to PHX from TUS. Apparently, a small single engine plane, in violation of new FAA rules grounding not IFR flights, crashed into a home in Tucson, AZ.

The news showed the smoldering wreckage and the scene was crawling with FBI agents and local sheriff's department.

In an interesting note, the plane was apparently being pursued by a black helicopter prior to crashing. An amateur photographer captured the retreating helicopter on home video. The FBI denies any knowledge of the helicopter.

A "Blackhawk" (Customs/DEA) perhaps?

I find it strange that of the 4 television stations in Tucson, only one has a small story on its webpage.

The information about the helicopter was reported during live coverage that I was watching soon after the incident.

Helicopters are so common over Tucson that most people don't even notice them
I found the report funny in that KVOA felt it necessary to point out there is no connection to Tuesdays attacks. Gee, really! Never would have figured that out.



Don't take life so seriously, you are going to die soon anyway.

Read the story, guys. Bad fuel makes bad flight.

BTW, I just HATE it when people bring up black helicopters. Especially when they claim to have seen these black helicopters at night. Golly gee whiz...
