Plane Reportedly Hit, Downed, Over Belgrade
Shooting your mouth off
at a wedding is one thing. Shooting an airplane down is something
altogether different. That's just what happened near Belgrade,
Serbia October 10th.
Serb police say it's a centuries-old tradition to fire guns into
the air to celebrate a wedding. This time, there just happened to
be a single-engine aircraft flying low overhead.
Witnesses say the gunfire hit the plane's left wing, leading to
a fire. The plane went down within sight of the wedding party.
There were two people aboard the aircraft. They were reported to
have suffered critical injuries.
