    ...it will be interesting to see what they SWAG on this one! It's amazing how many gets splashed every year. Anything to keep the noise away from the public. Let's just put everything over the water. Who cares if they can't glide back to shore. It's only two or three at a time. It's still safer than a car. SAD!!

    Ironically this was the second Twin crash in almost the same spot and the Navajo that crashed after hitting a cell in a thunderstorm?.....

    ... strange. Hopefully, there wasn't something missed in the NOTAMs?? We all know how much of a mess those are. Makes one wonder how proficient the pilot was?? I'm sure the NTSB will find something to kick the "regulator'' in the nuts if they can. Otherwise, it will be another sad statistic with pilot error.

    ...well the last wing failure I remember was the Emery Riddle Arrow. Did this one shuck a wing because of G load or structural fatigue?? When or if they drag the airframe up, they should be able to tell pretty quickly. At least the NTSB seems like they are concerned. All the "regulator" cares about is the 9 blocks on the -23!

    Attached is the NTSB preliminary report. Reading is sobbering and sad to use a word!

    It appears that the pilot lost control of this aircraft at 19,000 feet and was not on a IFR flight plan. Whether the occupants had oxygen is one thing. It should be pointed out that all aircraft above flight level 180 must be on an IFR flight plan. The aircraft was in IFR conditions......

    A pilot without oxygen at 19,000 feet can easily be confused and or become incapacitated.

    What happened........there are simply so many reasons that this aircraft crashed. Loss of control and the possibility the pilot became incapacitated.

    A sad situation.........!

    ... shouldn't have happened. Just another loss of control story.

    Nice MRO or no O2 at that altitude which caused a violent lost control of the aircraft?
