We can usually get away with bypassing some regs - but you aren't going to last long screwing with the laws of aerodynamics.

The sad thing is this guy took 4 others (that's right 5 fatals in a 4-place airplane) with him. This particular accident generated 12 pages of comments over on the Red Board up until the release of this report back in January--wasn't much to say after that.

The only hope for fixing such stupidity is the Darwin law.

That is one of the worst things I have ever read............

It is hard to believe that people can behave that way. Trouble is that the authorities end up with the "must do something" syndrome and the temptation is to over-regulate.

Just too sad .......

A friend of mine knew the guy and said that they'd been drinking most of the night.

Sad,

Sad,
When I first read about this accident shortly after it happened, that's exactly where my mind went.

"M" maneuvers? Parabolic arcs? Probably floating the lightweight passenger. Wow!

The real question to me is...
Who would get in an airplane with someone who has been drinking all night, or really, drinking at all??

Someone else who's been drinking long enough for it to sound like a good idea, most likely.
