Seems like the three in a row theory is once again right  Sad

Hopefully they mean "just" a small cessna etc. carrying sightseeing tourists rather than a charter jet with a "tourist aircraft".

CNN: 2 people dead, it was a small plane.
Cameras shoot pictures. Guns shoot people. They have the guns.

BBC is reporting the aircraft is a light aircraft. Probably a pop aircraft. Hope everyone is ok.

That's nuts, but it is three. Additionally, here in Tucson, there were 3 incidents with GA, cessnas and pipers, and my Flight instructor told me she breathed a sigh of relief after the third one...not that she wanted any of them to happen, but eveybody gets tense when an incident hapens...
Roger that, turning to our "other" left
