Of all the places to go for a spin in a stolen airplane…
BELGRADE (Reuters) – A two-seater sports plane on an unauthorized joyride was apparently shot down by mistake when it flew over a Serbian wedding party where guests were firing guns into the air, local media reported Sunday.
I heard shots from a wedding party which was very close to the crash site. Then I saw the plane in flames. It was shot in the left wing,” witness Zoran Vukadinovic told reporters. “A few moments later, while attempting a crash landing, it was caught in overhead power cables,” he said.
Firing guns into the air at weddings and other celebrations is common in Serbia.
