Stolen Piper Cub Video on YouTube Is Otherworldly

Spooky flight looks like fun.

It's a deepening mystery that probably will only lead to more questions than answers as we try to get to the bottom of the case of a stolen Piper Cub by an absconder that can only be described as, well, "skinny."

YouTube poster Gizmo brought us the creepy video of Mr. Skeltal, a decent-enough pilot by the looks of it, who took his plane on a joyride the other day without permission, even though the offending skeleton is "scared to death of flying."

Mr. Skeltal's steep turns are spot on, his wing-overs look like fun and his landing is picture-perfect — though his use of rudder is, how should we say it, non-existent from what we can see in the video.
