Buddy of mine is working on getting his pilots license to fly private jets.

Last thing I need to see right now is a story about a fatal private plane crash. Glad this this was a story about something dumb instead.

A 23-year-old man is dead after he came into contact with an airplane propeller...

...“The passenger had exited the aircraft too soon and walked forward into the propeller,”...
But I agree, what a way to go.

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage
of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
- Ayn Rand

I've known that happen to a couple of people, one in a small private plane and one in a helicopter. Both lived although both still carry the scars, physical and psychological. It's so easy to do, one unthinking moment and it's over.

“I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.” John Wayne as JB Books in "The Shootist".
