That's a Pilatus PC-6 Porter, not a Pilatus PC-12, according to the report. Those are two completely different types of aircraft.

Yeah Jlo next time please be precise to your Thread. PC6 is not PC12.

Oops sorry guys! I posted this right before I went to bed after flying the whole night... Shows what fatigue can do.
Read one thing and registered another.

Still a tragedy nonetheless... Anyone have any more news?
