The winglet and a portion of the wing flew off during flight.

Parts are falling off of jets now. It’s a thing. Believe it or not, there’s video if it, and it’s directly below.
A Cessna Citation that was flying at 27,000 feet over St. Petersburg experienced a horrific scene. The pilot, who was the only person on board, reported that the winglet on the edge of a wing had totally flown off of the aircraft, taking a portion of the wing with it. If you’re unfamiliar with winglets, they are perched upon the outermost portion of the wing. They are typically an upright structure at approximately 90 degrees to the upper wing surface. Officials at Tampa International Airport said they recieved notification of the in-flight breakaway minutes before it landed safely. Officials from Tampa International Airport said the airplane took off from Arkansas without any obvious problems. As with any issue that causes an emergency landing, the entire case will be investigated by the FAA.
What’s even crazier than parts falling off of an airplane? Our very own local TV Channel 8 and their airborne Eagle 8 caught the landing of the damaged aircraft as it happened. The captain landed the aircraft safely with no inury to himself or anyone on the ground. Even though the jet anded with no issues, emergency crews on the ground responded in full force. A big thank you goes out to that pilot who kept his cool even when he was in a very stressful situation. Source:

Suds You Can Now Try At The Game!

The 10 Tampa Bay Craft Beers You Can Buy at Rays Games in 2023

Back in the 80s, food and beverage options were pretty basic at baseball games. Hot dogs, popcorn, and Coca Cola are great and all, but the game experience has gotten so much better over the past decade or so with a focus on local vendors. The Tampa Bay Rays not only have some new food choices from local restaurants… but the selection of beer from the hot microbrew scene here in Florida is a home run. You can go with one of the big labels too like Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra. But if you like craft beers, check out the 2023 starting lineup.

Dinky Rockers!

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
