Can’t Park There

The news just reported that they have unconfirmed reports that someone is flying over Auckland in a (stolen?) light aircraft, and in communications with the police has threatened to crash it into the Sky Tower.

I have _equipment_ in the Sky Tower. Expensive stuff! Goddamn it!

I’m sure as hell not going up there to get it, now. I’ll wager they’re evacuating it anyway. I hope so, if this nutcase actually goes through with his threat.

I bet he aims for the restaurant, anyway, not the RF decks a few floors down. It’s a bigger target.

[Edit: UPDATE! Now reported that a small plane has crashed on Kohimarama Beach (Mission Bay, basically) and that the pilot is out and on the beach. Presumably the same dude as above. Excellent.]

    1. Oh, definitely. It’s actually designed to take the impact of quite large aircraft. A light plane would just, like, crash into it and go crunch. There would be no WTC-style crashings.

      But I still wouldn’t want it hitting where my stuff is, shielded from the outside by only a very thin layer of RF-transparent glass.
