    And, his estate will get a bill from the utility for " loss of revenue", plus cost of wire repairs. That's how it is in the crane biz anyway. So yeah, watch out for wires.

    ?WHy are we risking our lives flying in #rap like this. Please friends do a risk assessment before flying. Really bothers me when people say " they died doing what they loved"
    NO!!! if they were doing what they loved they would still be alive and flying.

    Just my 2 cents worth

    Delayed my flying several times this week out of Soldotna because of smoke. At one point it was 2 miles vis. Flew to Homer today, the smoke is covering the entire Kenai Peninsula with 5 to 7 miles this morning, a little better now. I came all the way from New Hampshire and hate to be grounded, but learned long ago sometimes you gotta shrug your shoulders and find something else to do for the day.

    I’m wondering if this C-172 was ever found? Anyone know more about it?

    Those winding valleys they play in are not for everyone. Curious if he just got a turn wrong or was it windy. Could be many other reasons too.

    Hey Alex,
    I'm not sure of your intent by posting raw data excerpts of plane crashes, but it doesn't provide any information worth discussing or any insight to learn from it. Perhaps I'm different but I always am looking to learn from incidents and the opinions presented about them.

    This is a followup about a Citation 500 crash, piloted by an older single pilot.
    After thinking about it, I realize this is a sad tale of probably a fellow that enjoyed flying, but had gone beyond his ability and training, relying on a system that would typically work for him, if no changes were ever needed.


    There’s a billboard out there that says the #1 cause of death in adult males is stubbornness. While the billboard is bringing awareness to prostate screening and cancer, it really applies to many things.




    The more you read, the more it shows.

    He just took over for flip flop I think...besides...if you dig into incidents that hit home for you, you can look into the news stories and watch for the final NTSB repot and possibly glean something of value. At least I do

    I'm not sure of your intent by posting raw data excerpts of plane crashes,

    Seven or eight years ago Anne took over posting the initial NTSB reports from Flip-Flop.

    Back then it was mostly PA-18 or other Cub type accidents. Since that was what the main topic was on this site.

    A couple or-three years ago ( actually 2014) Anne asked me to start covering the postings of the initial accident reports when I had time.
    So I agreed.

    Usually somebody here had or has more first hand knowledge related to the accidents and incidents listed on the AIN summary page. ( which is posted long before the NTSB lists the event) And they throw in the color story.....

    Other members have always thrown in more data from new articles and so-on.

    I have been throwing in interesting non-Cub stuff, ie bush flying, float or tailwheel accidents, but tend to leave out Jets, Helos, hot air balloons and Blimps.

    Good point. As I turned 60 I realized I started putting "are you being stubborn?" at the top of my daily life checklist.

    MIKE MCS REPAIR: Nope there is no tide up that far. That is a gravel bar on a river. The river current and mechanism of the wreck placed the floats elsewhere. The photo is looking downstream.

    PETE:

    He snagged the high voltage power lines over the Wosenenski River while flying in foggy conditions.

    The cables start down low and go up at an angle over that river. They send power over to Seldovia. He snagged them right were they are only 40-60 feet up.

    59°31'51.24"N 151°20'24.13"W


    I saw him depart Beluga Lake a few minutes before and skim the beach as he headed towards the eventual crash scene.

    It was super foggy that day, so Iron Inge and I were doing an oil change down at the lake. I told Inge that whoever it was, they were going to kill themselves.

    A few minutes later the power grid dropped out.

    A while after that a chopper spooled up and skimmed under the fog to see what happened.

    When the fog lifted I flew over and took some photos. The floats were a long way from the plane. One of the major power lines was broken free and hanging down on the gravel bar. It looks like he managed to snag the cable right between his floats and his belly.

    My opinion is that he was GPS flying up the river and never saw the cables. He was a private VFR pilot flying in IFR conditions.

    Sometimes only using the official data in a way to avoid somebody from getting a case of the Butt-Hurt and sending me snivel-grams. Years ago I posted overhead photos of a wreck scene and within hours the offending part 135 operation was calling me to remove said photos from here.

    There was a wreck a few days ago in this area. Obviously a case of overloading on a hot day, with a short runway.


    Large amounts of baggage and gear, including the rear seats, were seen being removed from the aircraft (and area), as fast as possible before any investigating agency showed up to look it over.

    Who knows what the final report will say,,,, if anything...

    I don't think so. When the sheep hunting starts that area will be covered pretty good, I expect if he is found it would be then.

    Alex you missed the mark on some of the important details. YES a mistake was made but I think he paid for it. Charles, I suggest you stay in Vermont
