Another One

A month ago, a Cirrus crashed on take off from Buttonville Airport, killing both occupants on board.

This was widely publicized in the media. I declined to mention anything about it on my blog for various reasons.

Yesterday, I read of another fatality at Buttonville, killing the sole occupant. This was during a commercial operation (from what I can tell by the liveatc.net recordings). The plane was in the middle of a “banner drop” when the accident happened.

I’m looking forward to the TSB report and will provide my thoughts/comments on it when it comes out.
