Single engine night cargo, single pilot, in those conditions, in that part of the country/world, has got to be one of the most demanding jobs in flying. Godspeed fellow pilot, rest in peace. :(

After reading some of the opinions so far on this tragedy, I am glad that we have a moderator who is on the ball. It is all about tact. Think of how you would feel having someone tread on a friend's or family member's memory based on nothing more than speculation and opinion.

Nothing worse than turning the TV on first thing in the morning to see a fellow pilot has died. It is a sad day, Godspeed. :(

I was once told that aviation is so small a community, if a pilot dies either you know them personally, or know someone who did. I didn't really think much about the comment til a crash outside Ottawa. Turned out I worked with the pilot. :(

The loss of one affects us all. Heart felt condolances.

For those of us left behind, may your day be safe.

:evil:
enough about the ^%&$(# weather, single pilot, caravans, winnipeg.
who gives a &*&^???
one of our own has just passed on. enough. when information is available then fingers can be pointed and the usual bull shit blames can be laid.
a little respect to the family, friends and co workers of this young lady who died doing the same job all of us are here to do.
please, a moment or two of silence would be better than "who did what, and why was she...."

IMHO until it happens to someone you know, rumors are in style.
then they get old in a hurry

edited by me for your viewing pleasure oh moderating one.
next time, moderate some names and guesses at what killed the poor pilot. that may seem to be more fruitful. no soap box here, just a dirty mouthed pilot. sorry if anyone was offended. the stories just got boring a little too quickly for me when i knew this fine lady.

Original Tony....if you want to show respect, I'd suggest you go back and edit the profanities out of your post. Until then, get off your soap box!

Sure....it's British....what isn't....and many years ago, people used to use soap boxes to stand up on and make speaches. Now this was may years before even Cat Driver was born! We're talking a LONG time ago. Then, of course, I could be totally full of bull doo doo?

Doc, you are correct, it is a British tradition to stand on soap boxes in Hyde park and give speaches on any subject that comes to mind...

..and yeh it started long before I was born, but of course so did the practice of beheading people in that same general area.....and if you want to go there just get off the underground at Green park and its a short walk from there....

The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no


After over a half a century of flying no one ever died because of my decision not to fly.

You can still go to Hyde Park on Sunday's and hear (or speak) opinions on virtually any topic imaginable.

http://www.travellondon.com/templates/a ... orner.html
Historical Background
Amongst those who have attended meetings there, are the some of the most influential figures in world history like Karl Marx, Fredrick Engels and Lenin. Even Cromwell's corpse was hung up here in a cage for public display, after he had died as a warning to others who might wish to abolish the Monarchy. This was of course in the days before Speaker's Corner when at the same location was "Tyburn", one of the "hanging fields" of London. Other's whose ghosts haunt this corner include William Morris, George
Orwell, the Pankhursts, CLR. James, Benn Tillet, Marcus Garvey, and a star spangled cast of millions more who shall remain unmentioned, excepting the immovable Lord Soper, still speaking at 94. Speaker's Corner has had a more powerful influence than any "university" in the world, because here there are no entry requirements, no rules of intellectual formality and above all no class restrictions. It is as Leslie James the Hyde Park pamphleteer wrote a fitting location to represent "the century of the common man."
Tourists or visitors to such official places of "learning" as Cambridge or Oxford University are not allowed to attend any lecture they like, come and go when they choose, and take part in debate and discussion. It is precisely these characteristics that mark out Speaker's Corner as a strange and exciting place, a place where mankind meets itself in a generally pleasurable atmosphere.
Tens of thousands of people come to Speaker's Corner once or twice a year, thousands more who come 5-10 times a year, and hundreds who come virtually through hell or high water. When you consider that there is nothing to buy here, there is no music, just human interaction without the mediation of machines and without any protection from the weather you begin to get a small glimpse of the significance of this place. Consider for a moment the so called Opinion Polls that the mass media constantly pump out, they take a survey of random samples of certain social groups and claim an accuracy rate, extrapolated from this to the entire country, of + or - 3-4%. But Opinion Polls are static phenomena a snap shot seeking out for example a yes, no, or maybe, answer. The human brain is however not static but undergoing constant change, a person may think one thing, and yet internally have doubts. Speaker's Corner may be seen as a dynamic refection of mass psychology in that you have here people from every walk of life, every class, and almost every country.
There is of course a widespread belief that Speaker's Corner is some kind of "nuthouse", where "cranks" and tourists go. Lenin once related the story of a man who was wildly shaking, seated, his arms were swinging around, the observer thought it was a madman, but upon closer inspection he discovered it was a man sharpening a knife.
Speaker's Corner is perhaps the most dynamic mirror of human consciousness in the world.

Umm, hey guys, heard some rumours around the grapevine, at some point taught at Shearwater, NS or had some affiliation with SFC. Please keep in mind this is more than second hand information and not to be entirely relied upon. My condolences to her family.
