Father Lands Plane on Golf Course So Son Doesn't Miss Tennis Lesson

Here we go with a sense of entitlement again. In Lincolnshire, Illinois, a plane made an emergency landing on a golf course - because the father wanted to make sure his son wasn't late for his tennis lesson.

Police came to the Marriott Resort Crane's Landing Golf Course on Saturday afternoon when told that a plane had landed on the course. Robert Kadera his 14-year-old son, Isaac, were standing outside the aircraft, a 1949 Piper Clipper, which was sitting in the middle of the golf course about 20 feet south of the retaining wall that separates the golf course from Route 22, police said.

Kadera said his son was late for his tennis lesson at the Lincolnshire Club across the street from the golf course on Route 22 . Thus he did what any selfish person would do: land on the golf course so his son could walk across Route 22 to the Lincolnshire Club after landing.

Apparently Kadera wanted to hop back into his plane and take off again. However, his plane was leaking fuel and the police impounded it. Route 22 was shut down during part of the event and the removal of the plane. The Lake County State's Attorney's office is trying to determine if criminal charges are warranted, police said.

Certainly this guy should get his license suspended and he should be forced to pay for a) damage to the golf course (you gotta bet they had to fix up the runway, I mean fairway), b) police expenses, c) shutting down Route 22.

Talk about selfish.

Where do you get these "sense of entitlement" and "selfish" comments? I would argue that the problem is lies with an uptight anal retentive society. So the guy landed his plane on a golf course. Who cares? I happen to know that the owner of the golf course lands his helicopter there also. And the problem is? That's what these planes were built to do. There wasn't any damage to the golf course - he landed on the snow with skis. The problem lies with an uneducated paranoid public.
