Default Monday

Last Monday at about the time I was getting home from my construction job a Piper Navajo passed over my house on its way to Seattle. A short time later the plane was seen struggling to reach an emergency forest service strip in the mountains and crashed short killing the pilot. The plane belonged to a cargo outfit and flies the same routes day and night. This is the second crash they have had this year. Last weekend my brother discovered that one of his high school buddies was killed in another cargo plane crash last month at a different company. Whenever there is an accident of small plane it brings back memories of all the friends who I have lost over the years. In the modern RJ age it is easy to forget that this is a dangerous business.
