  1. It wasn’t a wooded area…it was a small area of landscaping in my front yard. It crashed in a residential neighborhood 100 feet from my house and 50 feet from my neighbors’ house. It barely missed my house as it crashed through the trees from my back yard to my front yard. All the toxic lead fuel leaked from the plane into my lawn.
