    Sad indeed. That one up by Healy....it sounds like they may have been down for a little while. They had gone hunting earlier in September.
    Sure hope everyone keeps their mind on flying the plane......

    It was certainly a tough fall for aviation. My heart goes out to all those who lost family and friends in wrecks this year. To the people at Regal Air and all those who know and have been touched by Dave Oberg. To the families and friends of the Dave King, Josh Peppard and his son, who lost their lives in the helicopter crash at the same time. It is encouraging that these men all died doing something they loved; "died with their boots on," as they used to say in the west. It is always sobering to be in the field in a fly out hunt, to hear news of these deaths, to see their evidence strewn about the landscape, to feel the icy brush of death's hand when a crash hits particularly close to home. I received news of Dave Oberg's death on my Inreach, as I sat waiting on a gravel strip for a plane that would never come. I just hope we are all prepared when it is our turn!
