Downed Wright Flyer No Match For F16
Thousands attending the annual Hagerstown, Maryland Air Parade watched in horror as an F16 shot down an antique Wright Flyer as part of a Homeland Defense interdiction to enforce President Bush's no-fly-air-zone. President Bush is reported unhurt in the incident. Bush speaking in nearby Coward City was rushed to Airforce One, and his exact whereabouts are currently unknown.
The Wright Flyer, one of only two remaining operational aircraft built by Orville, and Wilbur Wright, was not equipped with a radio and therefore unable to respond to repeated warnings. Flying at over fifteen miles per hour it was unable to land in time, and had to be shot out of the sky by the supersonic F16.
"My heat seeking missiles wouldn't lock for some reason so I went to my cannon, and blew that bird out of the sky", said pilot Dan Jefferies. Luckily, the pilot of the Wright Flyer, Robert Truit, jumped out of the plane just as the F16 came in for its final run. Mr. Truit, 75, has already been released from the hospital, and is being held for questioning by the Secret Service.
"This is a lesson they'll never forget", stated Vice President Dick Cheney, "We all have to remember that the terrorist will stop at nothing to destroy our way of life, to instill terror in the hearts of the people".
