RV9A accident - fatal (2)

Post by A2022 »

I saw this report about a fatal (2) accident and wondered about Oshkosh-itis. VMC into IMC seems to be the cause. pushing too far. never let get-there-itis or airplane marketing hype push you into dangerous situations. the marketing guys are doing their job to get folks pumped up (that's how they get paid), but there will always be next time. very sad, condolences to the families.
