Bridal bouquet launch brings down private plan in Italy

ROME — A romantic wedding in the Tuscan countryside ended with injuries after an attempt to launch the bride's bouquet from a plane brought down the tiny aircraft.

Italian police say two people were hurt in the crash of the ultralight plane after the bridal bouquet they launched got caught in the aircraft's rear rotor.

The flowers blocked the engine, bringing the plane down by a youth hostel.

Police in the nearby town of Piombino said Tuesday the pilot was lightly injured in Saturday's crash, while the passenger who threw the bouquet had several broken bones.

The bride and groom were not aboard the plane.

Interesting idea, but I'd stick with the more traditional throwing of the bouquet!

  • The pilot didn't think to tell them that throwing something small and light into the wind would blow it into the engine? Idiots.
    I hope no one was hurt....
