    The background in the few pictures seem to show the weather possibly less than ideal. It was daytime anyway.

    Yes, to bad, retired, should of been few time constraints.

    I'm familiar with the area; there are some decent hills (and hilltop towers) to hit if you can't see them. Sounds eerily familiar, if that's what happened.

    I work about 12 miles from the crash site. We had low ceilings and icing pretty much to the surface that day. My students had a long discussion about ADM the next day.
