What’s Wrong With This Picture???

A homebuilt airplane crashed while trying to land at the Wakefield Virginia Municipal Airport.  The plane, a Long-EZ, is a fuel-efficient, long-range plane.  The pilot was (sit down again) 80 years old!  WTH!!! 

Should this person even be driving a car, let alone flying an airplane by his lonesome?  Unfortunately, the Hollidaysburg, PA native was killed but this could have been worse if the plane would have struck a building etc…

Just sayin’….this seems rather dangerous letting an octogenarian zoom about the stratosphere, unsupervised.
