Bucks County Coroner confirmed on Saturday that Alfred George Piranian, of Chalfont, and Brian Filippini, the owner of the 1965 Beechcraft 35-C33, both died of multiple blunt injuries in the crash. The deaths have been ruled accidental.

Coroner Meredith Buck said Filippini was flying the plane when it crashed shortly before 5 p.m. in a Hilltown neighborhood not far from a middle school. No one on the ground was injured, but a pickup truck and nearby home were damaged by debris and fire.

Flight diverted to Sunport after public urination, obscenities fly


 
 

Feb. 23—Part of Southwest Airlines’ slogan is: “Low fares. Nothing to hide.”

One passenger apparently took the second part a little too seriously during a flight over New Mexico on Friday.

The man, who allegedly exposed himself, urinated in a corner and tried to fight two flight attendants, got a first-class ticket to jail when the plane was diverted to the Albuquerque International Sunport.

Samson Hardridge, who is 33 or 34 years old, is charged in federal court with interference with flight crew members and attendants in the Feb. 18 incident.

Hardridge’s attorney did not respond to a request for comment.

According to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court:

Hardridge was a passenger on a Southwest flight from Dallas to Burbank, California, when he got up to use the bathroom, which was occupied. A flight attendant asked him to wait in the aisle and, Hardridge, with his hands in his pants and a question of his own, asked if she wanted to see his genitals, “to which they declined.”

Hardridge then went to the galley door and began to urinate “in the corner of the aircraft” before the flight attendant told him that was not allowed. Hardridge became “very hostile,” yelling and threatening two flight attendants, calling them “dumb (expletive).”

The flight attendants asked Hardridge to clean up his urine and, as he continued to yell, told him to go back to his seat. The flight attendants “feared for their safety and that of the flight” due to Hardridge’s unpredictable behavior and alerted the pilot, who landed the plane in Albuquerque.

The return of ‘revenge travel’: As omicron wanes, Americans eagerly book vacations


VRBO

 

Americans are preparing to spend big – again – as omicron cases subside and states across the country loosen covid restrictions.

Travel agents, hotel operators and restaurateurs say they’ve seen dramatic spikes in demand in the past week, following a drop of more than 40 percent in daily U.S. coronavirus cases and spates of warmer weather in some parts of the country. People are booking spring break trips and summer vacations. They’re splurging on Disney vacations, private tours of Hawaii and cruises to Antarctica.

Unlike earlier in the crisis, when it seemed the pandemic would end with a celebratory boom, the reality has been more uncertain and filled with fits and starts. Many say that’s given them a sense of urgency to lock in “revenge travel” during this window of relative calm before it possibly disappears again. And though the Food and Drug Administration has delayed a decision on a vaccine for children under 5, families are holding their breath and booking anyway.
