Maybe he couldn't find an AR-15?

Here's the track of the flight, which stopped pinging back its position at 11:07 a.m. Eastern so it either landed or crashed:

Authorities release details on Cory Patterson, theft of plane from Tupelo airport
www.djournal.com

...UPDATE (12:20 p.m.):

At a press conference at Tupelo City Hall, local officials gave the following updates:

Cory Wayne Patterson faces local charges of grand larceny and making terrorist threats. Police Chief John Quaka said he expects federal charges, too.

Patterson has had some flight instruction, but Quaka does not believe he is a licensed pilot.

Law enforcement negotiators were able to convince Patterson not to go through with his threat and instead to land at Tupelo Regional Airport. Patterson did not know how to land the plane, so a private pilot was brought in to walk Patterson through the process. At the last minute, the private pilot aborted the attempt, at which time Patterson left the Tupelo area.

Law enforcement and family members were in contact with Patterson throughout the situation.

Quaka said authorities believe Patterson landed the crash landed the plane because it was running low on or was out of fuel.

Quaka called Patterson's theft of the plane a "crime of opportunity" and not a breakdown of security protocols. Patterson worked for a company that is contracted to maintain planes at the airport, including fueling the planes. This plane was fueled Friday night....



There's a timeline in the article.

"Striker, listen, and you listen close: Flying a plane is no different than riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes."

That would be a great way to destroy a plane but I don't think it would do much to the WAL*MART.

Why a Walmart?

Doesn't make much sense.

But I don't suppose there is any requirement that it has to.
