the law enforcement and the press have not release the pilots name or N- number of the aircraft yet, so please keep the speculation on the pilots identity down until the official press release.

“VAF Rule 2: Threads SPECULATING about the causes of a crash/incident before the Probable Cause document is issued are not allowed here.”

I’ll go ahead and lock this thread down in the interest of civility and respect, and in keeping with VAF posting rules.
