Coincidence: Pilot Has Fiery Crash Into Former Home

coincidence:  pilot has fiery crash into former home

In a strange coincidence, a plane pilot towing along a Geico advertisement banner attached to his plane had an odd, and unfortunate coincidence this early May, 2014. The pilot Brian Veatchi, was flying a plane doing a special job in advertising a Geico Insurance banner over baseball stadium Coors Field, during The Colorado Rockie’s baseball game. The plane suddenly lost power and he had no choice but to prepare for a crash landing over a residential area in Northglenn, Colorado. He crashed dead straight into the back of a home which did substantial damage to the home, and as well demolished the plane. The plane burst into flames but due to the help of Pilot Veatech, who managed to emerge from the wreckage for the most part unscathed, quickly put the fire out with a garden hose. Brian Veatchi is also a firefighter (an additional facet, to this quite odd occurrence as you’ll soon read to find out).

As it turned out the pilot used to actually own the house, but sold it in 2003. After some minor investigating by police the happening was deemed a pure coincidence. The current occupants of the home were not involved… nor were they harmed in the incident. They were not home at the time of the crash.  The odds of a pilot unwillingly crashing a plane into a home that he or she formerly owned are quite long, indeed. Especially in such a well populated area filled with thousands of homes. Strange things happen –
