What can one say about such a sad event?

I can’t add to story, but I have to wonder if this gets chalked up to “pilot error”?

I’m reminded of the plane crash of JFKjr, and the hubris of the pilot to think he can do it.  Even when there were alternatives.

In this case, flying into fog that was grounding others.  What would have been the “downside” to “discretion is the better part of valor”?  Missing a basketball game or being late for it!  A small price to pay for avoiding a disaster.

Requiescat In Pacem

One set of rules for me; different ones for thee.
