Hillary Unhurt in Air Crash

The Associated Press reports that New York junior Senator Hillary Clinton, narrowly escaped injury on the aircraft she was piloting when she was forced to make an emergency landing in Southern New Jersey because of bad weather. Hillary was on her way home to Chappaqua, New York from Washington, D.C.

National Transportation Safety Board officials have issued a preliminary determination that pilot error contributed to the accident.
The senator was flying a single engine aircraft in IFR (instrument flight rating) conditions while only having obtained a VFR (visual flight rating) rating.

The absence of a post-crash fire was likely due to insufficient fuel on board. No one on the ground was injured.

Photographs below were taken at the scene show the extent of damage to Senator Clinton's aircraft.

She was very lucky

Looks like another November surprise. Oh and it is a good think it didn't hit Teddy's car and knock it in the river again.

Barb,
I don't know. Hillary impresses me as one of those women who hasn't touched a broom in years. My guess is that she was standing on it like a flying carpet or something.

Are we really sure that the VRWC didn't have something to do with the crash?
Enquiring minds want to know!

To bad she wasn't using her other form of transport, the hot air balloon. Then there wouldn't have been the unfortunate problem (for us) of lack of fuel. ;o)

I have been reliably informed that Hilley was on her way to get her prostate gland checked when the plane went down. Students of biology can check this out to their heart's contents, between having a few brews with Congressman Foley.

Washington is a creepy place these days, and the First Lady of New York is going to make an outstanding President!

Marge,
I dunno, she's got plenty of hot air WITHOUT the fuel.

Maggie,
ROFLMHO! (:D)

Possum,
Reminds me of the farmer who was "out-standing in his field" (:D)

Best regards all...

That looks alot like Pelosi's broom, that she will use to clean up "The House", when it is not being used for her transportation.

RAM,
Yeah, I guess it's sort of a toss up between Hillary, Nancy and Helen Thomas as to who has the "best broom in town", ehh?

(:D) Regards...
