Default RV-4 down in Cortland Nebraska 10/17

The 2 occupants didn't make it. Plane looked pretty bad. http://m.journalstar.com/news/local/...ile_touch=true

An RV-6a crashed Friday elsewhere but they were fine.

fly safe!

We had to taxi the CRJ around a disabled RV6 or 7 on a taxiway in Fresno today. Glad it broke on the ground and not in the air.

Hate seeing crashed RVs in the news. Hopefully details will emerge and we can learn something.

Default Condolences

We lost two fellow RVers yesterday and there has only been 2 responses. Sort of shocked.

Condolences to the family and friends of these two RV Brothers.

Default So tragic

It is horrible news, and looks like it was a good weather day, and big open field. Having just been through the loss of 2 fellow RV'ers close to home, I will be praying for the families, and waiting for some facts to emerge.
