Amazing that there were no airliner crashes last year. So far 19 dead and climbing.

Paging Garandman, paging Garandman.

You all right?

Don't know. He uses both airports.

I e-mailed him and so far have no response.

It's humbling how quickly your life can be forever altered or ended.

I flew on a Beech 1900D two days ago.  Not a pleasant aircraft to fly in.  Not even as large as a small bus.  I wouldn't have much confidence in the safety features of such an aircraft.  Any crash at all would probably kill all occupants.

G-man just e-mailed me, he is fine. Says he makes the same hop b/t the two airports...

I am about 1/2 mile from the CLT airport. Here at work the planes come in and I can see the oil stains they are so low.

Indeed. We are not promised a tomorrow, and should make every day, even every minute, count. I never leave the house without kissing my wife and sons bye, and telling them I love them.

And glad to see the famed G-man is OK!

Regarding your comments on the safety features of the Beech 1900D:  No, it is not the most comfortable for passengers, but it is a very tried and true airframe and is very, very well powered.

I know, I flew this airplane for this airline.

If anyone sees a list of victims, I'd appreciate a link to it.  I've been looking, but I can't find it.  I've got two relatives that were returning home today from a wedding that I haven't been able to get into touch with.  Their last name is Wilson.z
