Witnesses said the pilot, who was alone in the plane, had a head wound and appeared coherent.

The student also said that he loves flying and would get back into the cockpit.
|Quoting Mirrodie (Reply 4):|
Now, it would have been poetic justice if the plane landed on that chicago mayor who, like a phantom in the night, bulldozed Meigs field.
