Rcmp Air 5 Accident

Recommended Posts

As to what happened, the word is that there was an engine failure in a high (30-50') hover followed by a more or less straight drop into the trees. The pilot suffered cardiac failure and was removed to hospital immediately but succumbed to heart failure 45 minutes later. Very, very sad.

Just found out about this today, I've been living under a rock. Didn't know him, but I know the name... condolences to all of you who knew him or flew with him.

Last Thursday a beautiful Ceremony was held for a great person, and fellow aviator.

 

The Full Regiment RCMP Funeral was impressive to say the least. Standing room only for those who came out to say there last farewell. www.peacearchnews.com/news/138163739.html

 

As many others I found myself choking back tears as they showed pictures of Dave and his young family.

 

For any of you who wish to donate, a trust fund has been setup to ensure Dave's two young children are taken care of for years down the road. Please PM me for details.

 

Sincerely,

Cosmo

Wayne was a Special. Randy was an Inspector, but as his death was not in the line of duty, he's not on the Wall, but may be in the Regina cemetery, which is well taken care of.
