Italian bride's bouquet downs ultralight

Not so lucky flying flora

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

An Italian wedding reception ended badly when the bride's bouquet downed an ultralight aircraft, the Corriere della Sera reports.

The happy couple had tasked pilot Luciano Nannelli, 61, with dropping the floral display on eager bridesmaids lined up at the do in Montioni Park, Suvereto. However, when passenger Isidoro Pensieri, 44, released the bouquet it apparently got tangled in the propellor.

This provoked an engine explosion, and the ultralight crashed into a field, narrowly missing a hostel packed with fifty young people. Remarkably, the pilot walked away unscathed, but Pensieri suffered fractures to both legs and "facial and cranial trauma". ®
