    Such a nice-looking man, it can't be true!

    Another reason the pilot should dump the ultra-lite in favor of a UAV!

    Good god man! That link was all ads and questions just to see the story... Use this instead - Shot Pilot Says Hunter Was 'Flipping Me Off & Pointing A Gun At Me'

    Attempted murder? Firing at an aircraft?
    (Why it's only a 2nd degree felony charge at this point IDK)

    I don't think we have to worry about ole Frank Urban owning any legal guns or getting hunting permits again anytime soon.

    Maybe he'll get a cot in the Jail cell with our friend William Meredith in KY

    I'm interested to see what (if any) charges the FAA has made against William "I own the sky" Meredith? Maybe they are just too busy tracking down UAV operators taking pictures for non hobby purposes.
