Well, we'll agree with Steve Chambers that there are few things scarier than a plane crash scene. But neighbors and complete strangers by the hundreds are converging on his West Hills, Calif., home for a look at what that might be like. Chambers, with help from a few buddies and an undetermined amount of beer, isn't disappointing them. With a good-sized section of a Gulfstream III bizjet as its centerpiece, and replicas of severed body parts for the dramatic touch, Chambers' Halloween display is the talk of Southern California. "It caught my eye. I thought a plane had crashed, and when I spoke to the owner he advised me that he was setting up a Halloween display," Greg Andrachick, an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department, told the Los Angeles Daily News.

Chambers, an apprentice aircraft mechanic, said his family has always done some kind of Halloween decoration. This year his job was his inspiration. He dragged the GIII parts home from work and put his macabre mind to work. "I thought this would be scary. I have dead bodies. I'll have strobe lights. So far, I've had a lot of people saying it's good. Only one person, out of everybody, drove by and flipped us off."
