The post from Phoinix was a link to a story. I just happened to see this on my television late-night newscast. Was surprised to not hear of it earlier. If the news was correct, the UAV was at 500AGL,...

I'm very low time, and have no 206 time. I'm not understanding this 206 LTE/LTA phenomenon. The video suggests to me a very light tailwind, as the dust cloud from the wreck moves away slowly. When I...

Yikes! Took me all of 4 seconds to reach TAS (tightened arse syndrome). No slowing due the reduced vis. Must have had a tee time to make. Or tea time. Agree with McDoo, candidate for Darwin Award.
