Default J. Buffett / Runway Misshap.

Runway mishap / NY POST -Today.


JIMMY Buffett lost control of his seaplane at the Palm Beach airport last Saturday and decimated a runway sign. Buffet was unharmed when "an updraft caused one of his wingtips to take out a 'Hold Short' sign at the intersection of Runway 9-Left and Runway 13," FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said. It wasn't Buffett's first close call with his seaplane. In 1994, he crashed in Nantucket Harbor, managing to swim to safety, and in 1996, he dodged bullets from Jamaican authorities who mistook him for a drug smuggler and forced him to land.
