Yes that is the owner, the fatal Lear crash in Bahamas was also another 'religious' figure.

Re: N103CD Gulfstream GIII aborts t/o nose gear collapse Nov

Sounds like the crew lined up the jet with the white line on the right side of the runway thinking it was the centerline - main wheels went off the runway on take off roll - take off was aborted - sounds like nose wheel separation followed by collapse onto nose. Yet to be confirmed - but comments fr...

What would you do with 10 HondaJets ???

There have been some big failures in the light jet market - from Day Jet in the USA to several companies in Europe that barely got off the ground and then went nowhere. In Canada we have AirSprint - and in USA they have Wheels Up and JetSuite. Of these JetSuite - which operate Phenom 100's and CJ3's...

Re: Cargo door falls off Lear 60 - Bono onboard

Aircraft is a 15 year old Lear 60 - used to by Daimler Chrysler's - and operated by a jet charter service in Germany. My understanding crew passing thru 8000' on descent into Berlin realized the door was open, they just continued the approach normally - and saw the door and luggage was missing once ...

Hearing the crane the Lear hit is 4 miles from the airfield - Lear reportedly exploded when it collided with crane. Rather than post the photo - passengers and crew pose with N17UF prior to boarding - incredibly sad to think 24 hours ago these people were excited about their flight - and now are all...

Re: King Air crashes into Flight Safety building in Wichita

Interesting side note, the pilot had just retired as an Air Traffic Controller at KICT - seems odd he'd take the time to call ATC as ur banking left at 150 feet without an engine?

The 2009 King Air was on a delivery flight from Beechcraft to it's new owner in Texas.
