re: Alabama Teens Steal Airplane and Die


There is so much wrong with this situation. Many have already been addressed earlier.

1. Absolutely no reason for the kid to have a key to a plane he had no training in let alone the certs needed. (If the parents knew, then it is as much their fault as it is the owners for their son having keys to something he shouldn't have had)

2. One of the first things in becoming a new pilot is your need to be mature enough not to take any risks that can endanger you or anyone else. FOLLOW RULES! He sounded like he may have been a nice kid, but obviously was not anywhere near close enough in respecting his limits, rules or the threat he posed.

3. The mom is an idiot for saying it wasn't a joyride. She obviously has no clue what licenses or ratings mean in aviation and she was paying for the lessons. Everything he did was wrong. (and he knew it as he taxied out onto the runway). She should be thanking god he crashed into a swamp rather than someones house killing innocent people.

What a terrible choice in headgear the young fella had.

re: Alabama Teens Steal Airplane and Die


The plane's registration was cancelled via FAA

When I was working on PPL, I took a ride with my CFI in a twin. He let me do a couple of engine outs and for someone not having any clue, the plane became a monster with only one engine. I have a feeling this is what happened here.

Insurance covers theft.

This was UNBELIEVABLY STUPID. Certainly Darwin Award material.

1. The student pilot did not have a license

2. As a student pilot he was expressly forbidden to carry passengers (unless someone else was acting as pilot in command)

3. Didn't have a multiengine rating (probably had never flown anything other than a single before)

4. Had no IFR rating (he could only safely fly when he could see the horizon)

5. Took off AT NIGHT (which ratchets everything up a notch) with a low overcast ceiling.

It is absolutely no surprise whatsoever that he almost immediately lost control and crashed. Sad that he took two other teenagers with him.


6. In the Mountains.

This is pretty sad though. I had a sergeant lose his wife and son during deployment. Waiting on the military to get him home on top of the loss broke him completely. Plus, the fact that his son was being a dumbass won't make it any easier on him.

Horrible way to get home from a deployment. I can not imagine the long ride home with that on your mind!

re: Alabama Teens Steal Airplane and Die


Look, they were incredibly stupid and committed theft, but it is still a very sad situation. The ringleader, the pilot, obviously nagged at his buddies to join him on his adventure. He ensured him that he could fly the plane well. I mean, they were just trippin', like teenagers do, and trusted him and went on the plane!

The death is very sad, everyone makes mistakes. Just because they went and pulled this bull shite doesn't mean that it's a plus one for humanity; they were just teenagers who were all #yolo and shite. I dislike the lack of dignity on this thread for these three young boys. Sad day.

3 dead teenagers doesn't seem like much to laugh about to me. I don't care where they happen to be from.

This is exactly why we must have Airplane control, so we can limit the use of "Assault Planes" that are on a murderous rampage, killing our innocent youth!
