P-51 Crash :(

Recommended Posts


A tragedy on many levels.

 

I almost got to fly in one just like that 20 years ago, but the pilot died (of natural causes) weeks beforehand. Definitely one of those regrets you carry with you.

Condolences to the passenger and family. Prayers for the pilot and his family. I got to ride in Spam Can a long time ago, and I am sure that the passenger was thrilled for his opportunity, even if it ended badly. Tragic.

Tragic loss of both human life and a classic warbird. May have been an engine failure during the critical landing approach, or a very hard landing leading to undercarriage collapse and rupturing of the fuel tanks. But we will have to wait for the outcome of the air crash investigation to find out the full cause of this tragedy.
