Alleged drunk driver slams car into plane at John Wayne Airp

Not much of safety at JWA, if a drunk driver can crash through a chain link fence and into a small plan.

What if he were a terrorist?

From LAT:

A car driven by an alleged drunk driver jumped the curb and drove through a chain-link fence and crashed into a plane at John Wayne Airport on Friday night.

and

That area of the airport consists of hangars for mostly small passenger planes with the larger commercial airliners mostly on the east side of the airport.

The security at JWA is a joke. I remember I went with my friend's dad to rent a plane (he was a recreational pilot) and all he had to do was show a gate attendant his driver's license in order to get on the runway with his car. This was POST 9/11 too, before that they just had an automatic gate.
There is nothing uglier in this world than a parent riding on the success of their child.

Ten terrorists armed with Bic lighters could cause more destruction in California during the late summer/fall dry months than any attack on JWA.

How many points do you get for something like that and would traffic school help?

I wonder if he had insurance?
