Fine, but they also had some potty humor in the same edition:A former flight instructor who allegedly thought that threatening to crash a Piper Cherokee into New Zealand's tallest building was the way to win back his estranged wife's heart is in hospital in Auckland, N.Z., after a two-hour drama that ended Saturday with the Cherokee crashing in the water 150 feet from a downtown beach.The man is being accused of stealing the Cherokee from the Massey University School of Aviation at Auckland's Ardmore Airport and telling air traffic controllers he planned to crash it into the Sky Tower, a 1,000-foot building in downtown Auckland. He reportedly told police his wife had left him and he wanted her back.No one else was hurt in the incident but the aircraft's low-level pass over the beach made an impression on 17-year-old Tortia Wilson and her friends. "We just wet ourselves," she told TV New Zealand.Har-de-har.Best regards/Luis
