The Federal Aviation Administration it will check to see whether any laws or regulations were broken when a low-flying pilot dropped live turkeys onto an Arkansas festival over the weekend. The annual Yellville Turkey Trot in northern Arkansas has included a turkey drop for more than five decades , though sponsors in recent years have distanced themselves from the practice. Several birds were dropped Saturday and then chased by festival-goers below. (abcnews.go.com) Daha Fazlası...

Turkeys can fly of course. Tame and frozen turkeys not so much.

Wild turkeys fly quite frequently... Tame one's can but most do not...

That was the first thought in my mind as I read the teaser. Bombing the mall parking lot. So funny, and the FAA never got involved!

Radio station in Sacramento got into trouble with a planned 'groundhog' drop from a balloon on Feb 2. Uproar did not subside when the groundhog was revealed to be a package of pork sausage.

At least these had a fleeting flight and a little freedom as opposed to the one you'll have part of for thanksgiving.

Isn't there a bullfight you should be trying to stop?

What? dropping them from the plane or chasing them after?
Where has your your indignation been since 1946?
