Wake turbulence damages a house. Isn't there any rule banning houses from flying closely behind big aeroplanies?

Wake turbulence damages a house.
Fascinating.

I wonder if it was really wake turbulence? I guess if the weather was otherwise gentle and you use that speculative method called Occam's razor, you are left with the big, heavy aeroplanie generating a serious $hitstorm by plowing through the air and keeping itself afloat.

Thank you for that most-unusual, but thought-provoking post.

Another reason to ban ALL airplanes!

(3) it wasn't an uncommanded reverse at all but the pilots did it on purpose, presumably to try to clear the developing condition (in which case wtf? but it's certainly plausible); or (4) the pilots issued some other prop pitch command and the wrong thing reached the engines. Given that the throttles were apparently advanced at the same time this happened, (3) or (4) seems more likely...
Seems to be (4); someone else captured the behavior on the ground and there's been an AD.

Another case of dangerous cabin odors and fumes: Some days ago, a Transavia flight from Las Palmas to Amsterdam made an "emergency" (so says the media) landing at Faro because of a smelly passenger.

It would appear we should ban all overhead bins...Flyboy even concurred, somewhat.

Still, banning aircraft is probably incrementally better.
