Happened yesterday. IFR conditions - ceilings at Gladewater 07F were at 800-1500' most of the day. It sounds like he floated down OK but then the wind caught the chute and drug the airplane for quite a distance until it impacted a fairly large tree in a stand of timber. https://www.news-journal.com/news/c...cle_f03654ee-003c-5e21-9242-dd692dd91bfc.html An obvious starting point in the debate if he would have been better off gliding down to an off field landing or pulling the chute. The IFR conditions make it a tough choice in my opinion, but I am sure that for alot on this forum there will not be a hard choice - but an obvious one, whatever that might be.
