Sad day in the aviation world. The comments at the bottom are chilling to see family posting about the loss of family members in the crash, and people seeking info on their friends at National.

Just got word from a couple of buddies that fly with National that one of our friends was onboard.

Within the aviation circles, freighthaulers are a closeknit group. Most are from a military background, and it seems we have all crossed paths at some point, especially in the world of "heavies".

When we lose one of our community, it really hits hard.

My prayers go out to the families.

Godspeed, Tim. You'll be missed.

I just watched a news article about the crash that showed very clear dash cam video of the plane stalling as it climbed out and falling to earth. It was painful to watch because you could tell the plane was going way too slow for that climb angle and you knew what was about to happen. I can't help think that the load must have slid rearward somehow and caused a massive aft c of g. My condolences to everyone affected by this.


edit. Not going to embed the video, but if you want to see it go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=Hpv3h6bazXo

Amazing landing. The blurb says it's a dead stick sideslip landing. Pilot is WWI German ace Ernst Udet. Impressive aircraft control.

Video from 2013 West Coast Formation Clinic



Spent last weekend training with the West Coast Ravens in Madera, CA. This is one of a couple of large RV formation clinics in the country every year. Although we practice locally every week, these clinics are a good way to make sure our skills don't degrade and that we aren't introducing some wierdness while practicing in a vacuum. There are 27 aircraft in this flight.

Go to a FISDO get a PPL based on Can ATPL and Can medical or take the complete US course for ATR, I did it, brutal...
They used to issue a commercial based on the ATPL but that was 25 years ago.
Best bet: phone call to FISDO or FAA website.
