It appears as though I’ll soon have to run to the wilderness and fight for my survival against the invading Red Army. They’ve already sent their fighter jets in but they’ve had little affect:
A vintage Russian jet was destroyed after crashing Thursday morning in Eden Prairie as it attempted to land for this weekend’s annual air show.
The pilot, who hasn’t been identified, was landing his 1975 MiG-21 at 10 a.m. at Flying Cloud Airport for this weekend’s Wings of the North AirExpo. Officials said the jet’s parachute, which helps slow the aircraft, was deployed, but appeared to collapse and detach, causing the plane to overshoot the runway.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to hear about MiGs crashing in my area… ever.
