We're thankful God let you live. We enjoy your contributions here.
Here is a very impassioned Op-Ed by a witness and civilian responder to the terrible plane crash. They have located and identified all 8 victims. It appears both pilots were well respected, trusted and experienced pilots. How these two pilots made such a terrible error, or errors may never be fully known. Perhaps it was simply an accident waiting to happen because of the increased air traffic around the lake every summer in an area with no air traffic control.
The Op-Ed is well written and sums up much of the sentiment of our community.
Here is the most complete write up on almost all of the plane crash victims including testimonies for both pilots.
The final report will come down to: "Failure to see and avoid"
My instructor taught me to keep my head out of the cockpit and keep it on a swivel and always keep your eyes open.
Not sure who will be blamed. Perhaps nobody completely.
The more I hear about it, it may be the number of planes in an uncontrolled region and pilot error to both pilots equally. Perhaps there needs to be more order and routes within the lake itself. Probably won't have a report until some time next year, bu that won't bring back any of these lives cut short.
Our trip to the lake this weekend saw a "no boating" grid around the recovery barge, I took a picture.
when we came back the barge was gone.
Lots of planes flying over the lake.
Wow. You think that they would've had the area marked off.
It was Bill, the sheriffs dept had buoys marking the "NO Boating Area"
