Friday we found out whom and the extent of the injures, mainly from his sister-in-law posting updates, and it was looking dire. Then this report came out about the accident: https://www.pnj.com/story/news/crime/2021/07/30/pensacola-plane-crash-pilot-tried-land-school-track-blue-angels-elementary/5428871001/ Then this morning, there was another update that the son is home from the hospital, the wife's recovering well from her surgeries and that Phil's going to have surgery later this week but is in good spirits. Dude's a freaking even hero on top of being a multiple deployment combat vet. Good to hear they are ok. I'm not afraid of flying or heights but those small personal planes are not for me, always seem to come down way more often than anything else. Not that I'll ever have to worry about being one in anyway lol Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
