Heli Down Northern Sask?

Recommended Posts

I knew both guys that were involved. Both really great people. I realy hope things work out in the end but it does not sound very good at the moment. I will wait for more details to come out before I post what else I have heard. I want to make sure the information I got is correct before I accidently start any rumors. It has been a bad year for crashes everywhere, and I hope every flys and wrench's safe.

 

Cheers

All they found so far was small peace's of scrap metal. They haven't found the whole fusalage yet and still haven't found the two missing person.

I keep thinking about this. <_< Because I remember the waiting and the wondering and the hoping and the feeling of helplessness. Sending peace, with lots of love and courage, to the families, co-workers and friends of the pilot and the pax. *Sigh*

We may never know exactly what happened but if it makes it little easier for us whom are left behind the pilot used every iota of skill accrued with the experience over his/her lifetime till the very end.

FLYING WEST

I hope there's a place, way up in the sky

Where pilots can go when they have to die.

A place where a guy could buy a cold beer

For a friend and a comrade whose memory is dear.

A place where no doctor or lawyer could tread,

Nor a management-type would e'ler be caught dead!

Just a quaint little place, kind of dark, full of smoke,

Where they like to sing loud, and love a good joke.

The kind of a place that a lady could go

And feel safe and secure by the men she would know.

There must be a place where old pilots go,

When their wings become heavy, when their airspeed gets low,

Where the whiskey is old, and the women are young,

And songs about flying and dying are sung.

Where you'd see all the fellows who'd 'flown west' before,

And they'd call out your name, as you came through the door,

Who would buy you a drink, if your thirst should be bad,

And relate to the others, "He was quite a good lad!"

And there, through the mist, you'd spot an old guy

You had not seen in years, though he'd taught you to fly.

He'd nod his old head, and grin ear to ear

And say, "Welcome, my Son, I'm proud that you're here!

For this is the place where true flyers come

When the battles are over, and the wars have been won.

They've come here at last, to be safe and alone,

>From the government clerk, and the management clone;

Politicians and lawyers, the Feds, and the noise,

Where all hours are happy, and these good ol' boys

Can relax with a cool one, and a well deserved rest!

This is Heaven, my Son. You've passed your last test!"

— Captain Michael J. Larkin, TWA (Ret.), 'Air Line Pilot' magazine, February 1995.
