This Really Happened!

Airplane Drops Bag of Flour
Over Dodger Stadium in 1971

On September 4, 1971 during the ninth inning of a Dodger-Cincinnatti Reds game an airplane flew over Dodger Stadium and dropped a 10 pound sack of flour. It hit the infield, about 10 feet from where Woody Woodward, the Reds shortstop was playing.

No one was hurt. The Dodgers notified the FAA who had no record of any flights that evening in that area.

True Story.
