Bizarre Brazil Aircraft Deaths

On Saturday in Brazil, a microlite pilot was killed when the aircraft he was flying crashed into the side of a block of flats. His wife and co-passenger was critically injured in the accident. Why am I mentioning this? Well, this isn't the first time that the hapless pilot has brought death and destruction from the air.

Last year, he decided to suprise his aunt by flying to visit her on her idyllic hilltop retreat. Hearing the noise of the aircraft, she ran on her lawn only to be decapitated by the landing aircraft's wing. Police are investigating.

I put that into altavista translation to read it:

"In the year passed In July of the year passed, during a landing of emergency in Bonfim, district of Dobral, the entrepreneur was accused to run over the aunt of it, Maria of the Favours, Moura Bridge, 57 years. It was reached in the head for the wing of the ultralight one. The Regional Policy opened inquiry to investigate the case."

Maria of the Favours? was she a hooker.
