The scene where a plane crashed into a home in Payson, Utah

The alleged intentional crash in Payson, Utah, came hours after Duane Youd was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of domestic  violence

When you are soooooooooo angry at you wife that just beating her like most normal pieces of trash?  why, you follow the example set by the Japanese in WW2 and get a plane and kamikaze the thing into the house she’s in.

“PAYSON, Utah — A Utah man flew a small plane into his own house early Monday just hours after he had been arrested for assaulting his wife in a nearby canyon where the couple went to talk over their problems, authorities said.”

The pilot, Duane Youd, died.” Excellent reporting.  I don’t think anyone would have been sure a dive bomb into a home inside of a giant piece of aluminum full of aviation fuel was deadly

“His wife and a child who were in the home got out and survived despite the front part the two-story house being engulfed in flames, Payson police Sgt. Noemi Sandoval said.”

Luckily the wife and boy escaped  death. Had they been in the wrong part of the house it would probably been a case of needing dental records.

Youd had been arrested about 7:30 p.m. Sunday after witnesses called police to report that Youd was assaulting his wife, Utah County Sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Cannon said. The couple had been drinking and went to American Fork Canyon to talk about problems they were having.

How did I know booze had a part to play in all this.  Or has Hognose called it, “judgement juice.”  We have seen some pretty crazy things over the past two years.  A man flying a plane to his own death in an attempt to kill the  old bal and chain out of spite ranks right up there with  “free bleeding”.

Youd was booked into jail on suspicion of domestic violence and then bailed out, Cannon said. Youd requested an officer escort to go to his home so he could get his truck and some belongings around midnight. That occurred without incident, Sandoval said.

If he had requested an officer escort him to the home and told him they would take plane ride would he had agreed?  Maybe if he was a member of the LEO investigating the Las Vegas concert shooting..

Within hours, Youd was taking off in the plane from the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport about 15 miles north of his home. He flew directly to his neighborhood and crashed into his house, Sandoval said.

Photos of the wreckage showed the white plane charred and in pieces in the front yard nearby an overturned and crushed car. Most of the upscale house was still intact, but heavily burned in the front.

In case the image above wasn’t all you needed to see.

Police had responded one previous time to the house on a domestic violence incident, Sandoval said. Online court records show that Youd agreed on July 23 to attend marriage and family counselling sessions for six months as part of a plea agreement following an April 8 domestic violence incident in which he was charged with disorderly conduct.”

Flying a machine into a house is pretty disorderly.  Luckily though Youd would have been prohibited from owning a firearm due to the domestic violence charges.  Goo thing or otherwise some one could have been hurt!
