    Talked to a witness (a friend in Oz) last night. Low altitude stall and spin.

    Saw that. Really sad, perfect weather day too. I wonder why such a mistake was made.

    Has happened to many Beavers that are "cranked and banked."

    I'm fairly sure that is the guy I flew with in 2004 or so when I was in Sydney. I was in the right seat. Margy was in the back. We had two other (not related to us) tourists in the middle seats. Margy and I had headphones with mics talking to the pilot. He didn't give the other tourists mics. He gave me a nice running commentary on how to take off the Beaver on the water.

    Between this one and the Costa Rica crash, there’s been sadness to spare, for sure. Stay safe, everyone.
