    My God, that is a tragedy. So talented. RIP.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    So sad. He was talented, and from what I've read a really nice guy. Sending prayers to his family and friends. RIP.

    As much as I tremble at the thought of stepping foot on a plane, If I had to I would. On the other hand, there is no amount of money in the world that would have me go on a helicopter. I know many think they are safe but I am not one of them and the amount of times we hear something like this happen is why. 50 is no age. RIP.

    In a fixed wing aircraft you have much more redundancy than in a rotary wing aircraft. In fixed, even with a single engine you can glide to a landing hopefully. In rotary, unless you can get into an auto rotation quickly, forget it...you bought the farm.
