A deranged German man stole a small plane at an airfield near Frankfurt today and threatened to crash it into a skyscraper. His claimed motive was to call attention to his idol, astronaut Judith Resnik, who was killed in the Challenger disaster in 1986. He was talked down and arrested before causing any injuries or damage.

We can be thankful, I suppose, that he didn't try to stab Sally Ride....
