Let's hope it was not on purpose...

Of course it was not on purpose. Let's get a grip here. It was an ultralight crashing into the shed of a farmers family in Kilder. You know, Kilder... Manhattan in the Achterhoek?

Anyway, RIP to the pilot and passenger. Fortunately noone got hurt on the ground, though the shed and adjoining kitched reportedly burned down.
Attamottamotta!

You bet it is!!!
No details are known so far on the aircraft/reason why it crashed, the farm is on fire and the people living in the house are unharmed.

of course i didn't mean an attack, but i was just thinking of the suicide of a young guy (i think he was 14 or so) a couple of years ago in US who did something similar...
