I couldn't get a hold of my buddy last night.
It is his unit, but he wasn't flying.

He is ok.

Unfortunately one of his close friends was lost.

Very sad for sure.
I am sure they will find a cause at some point ( sadly by the time they do it might not even be a blip in the news)
With 3 pilots on board including one with over 30 years experience it must have been something very catastrophic
