Pilot threatens to crash over Walmart store in Mississippi, lands safely

JACKSON (Mississippi), Sept 2: A pilot who flew a stolen plane for several hours on Saturday morning and threatened to crash over Tupelo in Mississippi, gave up and landed safely. The suspect has been arrested on charges of grand larceny and terroristic threats, but the motive is not yet known.

Cory Wayne Patterson, 29, the pilot who did not know how to land finally had a rough landing in a soybean field on the outskirts without injuries. He had circled the town for five hours threatening to crash on a Walmart store. The police had told the residents to stay indoors while they negotiated with the suspect.

Patterson was employed for fueling planes at the Tupelo regional airport. He had thus the access to the twin-engine Beechcraft King Air C90A, which he stole for a flight. Fifteen minutes after taking off at 5 am he had told the Lee County 911 that he was going to crash into the Walmart store. Police immediattely evacuated the store and other areas around. The police succeeded in persuading to land.

The plane came down with a thud. The pilot got out of the plane without resisting the police who were waiting.

Aviation experts say the small airports which are plenty in the US are unsecured and that anyone knowing flying can walk into and take off a small plane for terror purpose.

For a month people have been under notice to boil water before consuming. Schools are closed. Residents endure long queues for bottled water for drinking and cooking. President Joe Biden approved an emergency declaration for Jackson. Flooded river water had choked the already damaged treatment plant on Monday. Daily life has remained upended since.
