I see by the snailpapers that a man was killed on a beach by a crashlanding airplane as he jogged along the sand with an iPod in his ear and didn't hear a thing as the plane was gliding down in an emergency landing and he never knew what hit him. If this isn't LIFE, then ouch!

A 38-year-old father of two was jogging and listening to his iPod when he was hit from behind and killed by a small plane making an emergency landing on the beach, officials said Tuesday.
Robert Gary Jones of Woodstock, Ga., died instantly Monday evening when he was hit by the single-engine plane, which had lost its propeller, said Beaufort County Coroner Ed Allen. The pilot's vision was blocked by oil on the windshield.
Jones apparently did not see or hear the plane, which was "basically gliding," the coroner said.

RIP Bobby Jones. He never knew what hit him! Ouch!
