(26 December 1997, Brazil) A bicyclist crossing an airport runway in Sorocaba,
a city 87 kilometers from Sao Paulo, was killed when he was hit by a landing airplane. Marcelo, 25, could not hear the twin-engine plane because he was listening to
his Walkman on headphones, investigators said.
The propellor and right wing of the plane were damaged.
