Plane Hits Cable - Key West FL

3 dead after plane hits blimp cable

A Cessna 182 airplane collided Friday night with the cable that tethers the large, unmanned radar blimp on Cudjoe Key, leaving three people dead.


This happened a few days ago. Ironic, as I'd just mentioned this cable and the associated restricted area in the post on potential US destinations

on the round-the-world challenge.


That RA is clearly depicted on the sectionals and anyone from the area should be well aware of it. The quote is from a local news web site and that's all they give you without a paid subscription.


Bad week for airplanes in the US - If what happened at VA Tech is any indication there should soon be an outcry to outlaw airplanes lest more people die needlessly.
