Default BREAKING: Pilot in Stolen Plane Threatens to Crash into Tupelo, MS Walmart

https://thelibertydaily.com/breaking...-into-walmart/

Quote:
A pilot flying a small plane over Tupelo, Mississippi has threatened to crash into a Walmart, authorities warned Saturday. The Tupelo Police Department said it was notified around 5 am this morning that a pilot flying what a “King Air type” airplane was considering the crash landing into a Walmart located on West Main street. Authorities have confirmed the plane, which is believed to have been stolen, is a fixed-wing multi-engine 1987 Beech C90A model.

Authorities said they have evacuated the Walmart and a Dodges eatery and gas station located near the shopping center to disperse people “as much as practical.” Roads in west Tupelo and near the airport have been reopened and the pilot was last reported to be flying near a Toyota plant in Blue Springs, an area northeast of Tupelo, according to local reporting.

The police department said they are in contact with the pilot who is an employee of the Tupelo Regional Airport. Gov. Tate Reeves took to Twitter to spread the warning first issued by the Tupelo Police department and said, “State law enforcement and emergency managers are closely tracking this dangerous situation.” “All citizens should be on alert and aware of updates from the Tupelo Police Department,” he added.
Probably upset with self check out registers.

He's offended by the racist, bigoted, gendered name of the King Air.

Maybe he was turned down for a "Greeters" job.

Possibly the pilot just read Tom Clancy's book Executive Orders and was trying for a small scale version.

Good because there weren't enough fork lifts around to get all the Walmart customers to safety..

I think he was trying to enter a parallel holding pattern. Nope that isn't it, let's try teardrop. Nope, not that either, direct? Aw the hell with it!

I use to make the trip to Tupelo, about 4x a year for biz. They had several decommissioned airliners they were ripping apart for scrap. Just strange seeing those big beast torn apart.

I also visited all the Elvis, locations.
