Good example

StarTribune, July 6, 2009: Columnist Stephen Wilbers on Effective Writing headlined "Keep those modifiers from just hanging there." So What's a dangling modifier anyway?", he asks. Check the Star Tribune, same date, page A3, for example. "The ousted president's plane circled the airport as a mass of supporters gathered, then veered away." Can't you just see that sea of supporters veering away from the circling plane?
