A Plane Crashed Into My Dealership!

I just heard on the news that a small plane crashed into BMW of Maui, the one and only dealership on this island! My sympathies go out to the pilot, employees of the dealership and all those affected. My car was just in there for two weeks for an airbag light. Glad I picked it up in time! Although, BMW might have replaced it with a 335i j/k! I'm probably screwed for service for a while though :mad:

Here's a link to the story:

(Sorry, I couldn't resist!)

But damn, of all the places to hit, why couldn't the pilot steer towards some open space instead?

I think I may actually cry if I see the showroom demolished . I should probably avoid the area for a while.

Bummer...It was just reported that the plane that crashed was an air ambulance with a pilot and two paramedics en route to pick up a patient for transport to Honolulu. =(

Insurance will pay for the dealer's losses, probably including lost revenue if he can't do BAU for awhile. The true loss is the loss of life of the air crew. Very sorry to hear about it.
