Warning; a lot of info in the sound bites, but x rated at times, aircraft passes overhead at 2:40 in the video.

NTSB Identification: ERA09LA325
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Saturday, June 06, 2009 in Knoxville, TN
Aircraft: SMITH BRET B SEAREY, registration: N169GW
Injuries: 2 Fatal.

This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed.

On June 6, 2009, about 1744 eastern daylight time, an amateur-built Searey, N169GW, was substantially damaged when it impacted Melton Lake, near Knoxville, Tennessee. The certificated private pilot and passenger were fatally injured. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed, and no flight plan was filed for the flight. The local personal flight was conducted under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91.

According to preliminary information provided by a Federal Aviation Administration inspector, the pilot was providing rides to passengers attending a celebration on Melton Lake. Following a previous uneventful local flight with another passenger, the pilot returned, landed, and the accident passenger boarded.

The final moments of the accident flight were captured on video by pleasure boaters on Melton Lake. The video depicted the accident airplane flying, about 200 to 400 feet above the boat, before it proceeded away. The airplane then entered a steep bank, descended steeply, and impacted the water. A copy of the video was retained by NTSB for further examination.

An examination of the wreckage was scheduled for a later date.

According to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) records, the pilot held a private pilot certificate with ratings for airplane single engine land and sea. The pilot's most recent FAA third-class medical certificate was issued on February 4, 2009, and the pilot reported 450 total hours of flight experience on that date.

The 1753 weather observation at Mc Ghee Tyson Airport, located 15 nautical miles southeast of the accident site, included winds from 010 degrees at 3 knots, 10 statute miles visibility, few clouds at 4,800 feet, temperature 26 degrees C, dewpoint 14 degrees C, and altimeter setting of 29.96 inches of mercury.

The guy with the camera was an idiot. If it was me I would have been in the water as fast as possible. I hope his concience bothers him after that performance.

Judging by his commentary, I don't think there is much conscience inside his thick scull.
