An employee of the US Forestry Commission was uninjured after she crashed her plane at the Malvern municipal airport on 19 January, following a routine search for forest fires.
Tina Dodwell explains that it all began when she was forced to squint her way through the landing because the sun was in her eyes. Circumstances quickly took a turn for the worse as a gust of wind whipped the plane sideways.
The fierce sun and winds were simply too much for Dodwell, who tried to set her brakes in a last ditch effort to regain control over the plane, only to land in a ditch and hit a concrete culvert.
Dodwell's plane has been grounded pending the outcome of an FAA investigation.
Bubba Carver, co-owner of a restaurant in Smyrna, Georgia, could be sitting on an interesting aviation collector's item.
Carver recently purchased 500 forks and 250 knives previously used by Delta Air Lines. Apparently Carver's restaurant is not unique.
Sightings of former airline tableware are being reported around the country.
Delta and other carriers sold their utensils to scrap metal dealers after the September 11th terrorist attacks transformed forks and knives into dangerous contraband.
The name ”Delta Air Lines” is etched on the underbelly of the flatware's handles.
Unfortunately, proceeds from the sale of the forks and knives were not enough to stop the flow of red from the airline's bottom line.
