The hubris of powered flight

[ #16166 ]

«A cameraman inside a Goodyear blimp was injured when the airship came loose from its moorings, drifted into a parked truck and nose-dived into a fertilizer pile beside a plant nursery.
...
The blimp ended up about 300 yards from its landing site. »

Beware! Death from above!
