Quicksilver LSA Damaged In Crash Landing
Police in Killeen, TX say they have in custody two men
responsible for an early morning plane crash earlier this week.
News-8 Austin reports two 18-year-old soldiers from nearby Fort
Hood have been charged with unauthorizred use of a motor vehicle...
which is a fancy legal term for "stealing."
As ANN reported, police asked the public for
CrimeStoppers tips after someone commandered a Quicksilver MX-II
from Skylark Field (ILE) early Monday morning, then proceeded to
crash it into some mailboxes in a nearby residential area.
Witnesses told officers they saw two men running from the scene.
The plane will need several thousand dollars in repairs.
