Well just saw in the news there was a fatal banner towing crash at Flagler County Airport. According to the ultra short news blurb it looks like he crashed on landing, looks like off of rwy 11. Anyone else gear more about this?

I just saw some pictures on the morning news. Sounds like a split flaps condition.

I've seen that plane many of times, at Flagler, its not exactly the gem of the fleet.


Starchkr:
The News-Journal isn't know for their excellent reporting skills. The media still thinks that if an airplane loses an engine it falls out of the sky, do you think they know what flaps are.

We probally won't know for sure for another year, it seems like the NTSB always takes that long to put out a report. Look at the French connection crash at the same airport, even though they had a video of the incident it took them a year to issue the offical report.

A passenger?

For the company's sake, I hope it was a training flight.

My prayers to the families.

I guess a Riddle instructor pulled them out of the plane. I haven't heard his story yet though.

Flagler is one of the couple of major practice airports in the Daytona Beach area.
