Wow sad...I thought this was just a repeat post from the other Caravan accidents....I think that's what, three freight dog Van's down in the past six months, plus the loss of the Navajo out West.

I thought that, including this, there were two fatals and a non fatal in the Van recently. Correct me if I'm wrong.

This is truly sad! As a former Martex pilot and Caravan driver. My deepest regard and respect for this aviator are felt.
To tailwinds, and fair skies in the after life. R.I.P brother.

Correct.

FedEx Feeder in Wichita (fatal)
Martinaire birdstrike in Oklahoma (minor injuries)
And this one.

I have several friends at Martinaire and I know they're hurting over there.

RIP Captain.

You're correct. I meant fatal, but failed to actually put the word in my sentence.

Yeah, no worries, I wasn't trying to nit pick. Just pointing out the spurt of Van related incidents lately.

I wish I had more than words, but let me say I think freight dogs do more with less...light GA aircraft, single pilot, back side of the clock, in the WX big time, into Podunk USA with some crappy NDB or VOR circling approach...

as a former martex captian as well and having spent some time on the GUY run and all the previous posts are right on the money. I have also flown up in the area where the crash took place and its not the friendliest of country side. I am eager to know more details. I believe he was in his first month and a great pilot. I know when I left in 2012 the maintenance was top notch as well as the CP in regards to training. Tragic.
