Bouquet Causes Plane Crash

As a person who shoots weddings you get to see all sorts of odd ways people handle various traditions. An Italian couple has topped anything I have seen.

Bride's bouquet brings down plane

The traditional throwing of a bride's bouquet for luck ended in disaster at an Italian wedding when the flowers caused a plane to crash.

The bride and groom had hired a small plane to fly past and throw the bouquet to a line of women guests, Corriere della Sera reported.

However, the flowers were sucked into the plane's engine causing it to catch fire and explode.

The aircraft plunged into a hostel. One passenger on the plane was badly hurt.

But about 50 people who had been in the hostel escaped unscathed, as did the pilot.

Read the rest if you dare.

Wow, such a simple tradition turned tragedy! Guess they won't try that again in the future!

You might say that those are the plane facts.

But then again, you might not.
