Breaking news
Plane crash in the area of Roberts Rd and Muller Rd in Stockton. Please stay out of the area.
The aircraft involved in the crash was a World War II-era. The plane attempted a landing in an open field and appeared to have struck an irrigation ditch. The aircraft sustained significant damage. All injuries sustained during the incident appear to be non-life-threatening. We are in communication with NTSB and FAA as they will lead the investigation. 
Three people were on the aircraft.  Two were transported to a local hospital, and one was able to walk away.

Isn't that the same organization that 'flew' Nine-O-Nine? At least nobody perished in this one.
I wanted to learn how to play drums when I was young but I was hatched 6 years after Neil Peart; and he had bought them all by then.

Maybe they used to own it, but ...

Yeah, but they painted the underside in a light gray. Looked very weird. Hope it get's restored with a better scheme.
