Widgeon incident on the Hudson River

Postby Cameraman » Sun May 05, 2013 7:58 am

Morning Everyone,

a mate mentioned to me yesterday that he'd heard that a Widgeon was involved in an accident on the Hudson River, either Thursday or Friday this week.

I have no other info but just hope everyone's OK.

Regards

Reggie

Update,

just had the sad news that the pilot Michael Braunstein, didn't survive the incident. My thoughts go to his family.

The aircraft was N8As, c/n 1315.

... as we've discussed before - those that wish to know more, know how to find out more...

Respects go out to the family from this side of the Pond...
