An Italian wedding reception ended badly when the bride's bouquet downed an ultralight aircraft, the Corriere della Sera reports.

It's a wedding, I'm sure there is a video. Let's see!
"narrowly missing a hostel packed with fifty young people." — so what? It's an ultralight. Even in Italy it wouldn't do much more harm than crushing a couple windows at best, would it? Unless "packed" means they were all crammed into the same room...

Beer, Czech lager please. Less hazzle than a woman.
