Default Piaggio P.180 Avanti Crash

Only fatal accident for this type.

JB speculates pilot incap, seems plausible. Not sure if they'll go to the trouble to access the wreckage on the ocean floor in the case of a private plane.

JB did an update. One of his viewers was checking the ADS-B data and the altitude alerter was set to zero by mistake. I don't think JB has put this on YT yet but he had it on Patreon.

But there was some sort of attempt to level off, and the descent rate was reasonable.
