    Utah man crashes plane into his own home



    Forget the 9/11 conspiracy thread, forget the the-americans-getting-shot thread, forgert that baggage handler who nicked
    a plane over the week-end and was doing loop the loops over a lake.

    Meet Duane Youd, the guy who had a disagreement with his wife and thought, fuck it, I'll fly the plane into my house.



    Think of the approach path, the stall speed.
    The guy made it over his neighbour's house and dead-eye dick nailed in pitch dark @ 2.30am his own place.

    Duane Youd ... I salute you!

    A Utah man has flown a small plane into his own house just hours after he was arrested for assaulting his wife in a nearby canyon where the couple had been talking over their problems, authorities say.

    Key points:
    • Investigators believe the twin-engine Cessna 525 belonged to Duane Youd's employer
    • Payson police sergeant said he was an experienced pilot
    • Mr Youd was earlier booked on suspicion of domestic violence and posted bail


    The pilot Duane Youd died after the incident, but his wife and a child — who were in the house at the time — survived, despite the front of the two-storey house being engulfed in flames, police sergeant Noemi Sandoval said.
    The crash occurred at about 2:30am local time in Payson, a city of about 20,000 people that lies 95 kilometres south of Salt Lake City.

    Background


    Daune Youd was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and posted bail before the incident

    Mr Youd, 47, was arrested at about 7:30pm on Sunday after witnesses called police to report that he was assaulting his wife,
    Utah County Sheriff's sergeant Spencer Cannon said.

    The couple had been drinking and went to American Fork Canyon to talk about problems they were having, authorities said.
    Mr Youd was booked on suspicion of domestic violence and posted bail, Mr Cannon said.

    Mr Youd requested an officer escort him to his home so he could get his truck and some belongings around midnight.
    That occurred without incident, Ms Sandoval said.

    Within hours, Mr Youd was taking off in the plane from the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport about 25 kilometres north of his house.
    He flew directly to his neighbourhood and smashed into his house, Ms Sandoval said.

    Do you think he would have thought of that if he hadn't seen the other mentally ill person do it at Seatac?

    Only in Utah...
