I don't think it is a terrible idea at all. Actually, I think it would be quite an honorable venture, to set up a collection of funds in the name of Tanner. The donations could then be used for a scholarship, in Tanner's name, or a donation to a noteworthy charity. It might be comforting to the Holts for them to know that even after he's gone, Tanner was still able to help someone. I'm in and up for it.......
At the least, I think a card would be good. I'd imagine a large number of cards would truly show support, without being obtrusive or invasive.
And no, I don't feel this thread is disrespectful.
Correct me if I am mistaken, but isn't a toxicology report one of the standard tests in any incident/accident? I mean if a wing walker isn't doing his job and I get hit by a rogue catering chariot, I have to go take a piss test even if the parking brake is set. So I'm assuming if I crash my Cessna 200ft from the end of the runway and kill myself along with all my buddies, I will also be tested for alcohol and/or other illicit substances.
I don't think it's is anything out of the ordinary. I hope they don't find anything though. That would be bad.
Ya, you all make good points. I wonder why the FED felt the need to say that he smelled alcohol amongst the four of them. He probably should have waited for the toxicology test to be completed before making a public statement about alcohol. This article was public information. It's interesting to see how these cases evolve.
I don't know about everybody else, but the only time I have been able to get four adults in a 172 and go anyplace was when two of them were ladies weighing around 110 ish pounds a piece. Four big guys in a 172 at that density altitude wouldn't leave a whole of fuel. Hopefully this turns out to be something else and Tanner Holt is cleared of any mistakes. But we all can make a mistake, and hopefully we can all learn from this if any were made.
