In a chilling incident, a co-pilot of a small plane died on Friday after exiting the aircraft in North Carolina, US, before it made an emergency landing.

According to the Independent, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) informed that a twin-engine CASA CN-212 Aviocar landed in the grass at Raleigh-Durham International Airport. But the body of the co-pilot, identified as 23-year-old Charles Hew Crooks, was found in a backyard, about 48 kilometres south of the airport. The pilot of the plane, on the other hand, was found alone in the aircraft and was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

Blame Prohibition. Though SAers might pay more given the typical alcohol consumption of sailors.

Prohibition lasted from 1919 to 1933. One of the stumbling blocks advocates of Prohibition faced before 1913 was that the federal government was heavily dependent on taxes on alcohol. The passage of the income tax constitutional amendment that year allowed government the luxury of banning alcohol without reducing tax revenue.
