Italy did that after U.S. war planes cut a cable car line.
Yeah, the Cavalese cable car disaster.Twenty people were killed in 1998 when a USMC EA-6B Prowler cut the cable car cable.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cavalese_cable_car_disaster_(1998)
The aircraft was flying faster and considerably lower than allowed by military regulations. The restrictions in effect at the time required a minimum flying height of 2,000 feet (610 m); Ashby said he thought they were at 1,000 feet (305 m). The cable was cut at a height of 360 feet (110 m).
