    LAS VEGAS (Aug. 22) - An experimental aircraft crashed into a house shortly after takeoff Friday, killing the pilot and two people inside the home, authorities said.
    The pilot of the home-built plane radioed that he was in trouble shortly after taking off from the North Las Vegas Airport, said Ian Gregor, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman in Hawthorne, Calif.


    Gregor characterized the rear-propeller Velocity 173 RG aircraft as "experimental," and said it can be built from a kit. FAA records showed the aircraft was certified for flight in 2002, he said, and was owned by a Las Vegas resident. The name of the owner was not released.

    built from a kit? Good Lord! :rolleyes:

    Yep, there are lots of these flying and they do undergo an inpection before they are allowed to fly.
    Years ago, a friend of ours even had a tiny jet that he built, it was called a BD-5.
