Mourning the loss of Divers

Post by Pez7378 » Tue Oct 09, 2007 5:46 pm

Skydivers-Scubadivers its all the same to me. Sad day today with the loss of 9 local Skydivers and a pilot. Fishtiq Skydived...er uh....skydove......uh..uh....Jumped out of a plane there in Snohomish at Harvey field where these folks all originated. I drive by there often and see them parachuting down hooting and hollering. I've always wanted to do that too. Jump out of a perfectly good plane and safely float down to earth.

Rest in Peace. And my condolences to family and friends.

Amen...

I beleive these folks died when their plane crashed, not in the act of skydiving?? Not sure, haven't heard all the details. It would be akin to scuba divers perishing when their charter sunk, or something thereabouts.

Yes that's right Tom. The Plane crashed in dense forest in White Pass coming home from Idaho. They found the other 3 bodies today Sparky.

Seems this Plane has a history of icing problems. Tragic.
