SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — An unlicensed pilot was flying a small homebuilt plane that crashed last week in rural south Georgia, killing all five people on board, after a witness saw the aircraft weaving up-and-down close to the treetops, federal investigators said in a preliminary report.

So many things wrong here…

1. No license
2. Why on earth would you go joy riding at 3:40am. Only bad things happen at that time of the night…
3. 5 adults in a 4 seat plane? The useful load on that plane is only about 1,100#

This should be a good read when the NTSB posts their findings. Wonder who had what in their systems?!?

The one semi-witness who was woke up in the middle of the night and said he thought it was a crop duster. Why would a crop duster be out before daylight?

Because they sometimes do fly at night a friend of mine used to do it quite often. One chemical they used could catch on fire while applying it so if they flew at night it could be seen. Its a fact not fiction ask an old crop duster say one that flew ag cats.

Just hadn't never seen it and we have them all over down here; of course they don't hardly spray anything here anymore but roundup and maybe put out some fertilizer.

Helped due to wind and such, while spraying a circle one night a flagger,using a flash light disappeared between loads. My friend figured he went to sleep and continued on. As he was finishing the edge spotted a light. Directed others to it found the fellow in a washout about ten feet deep with a broken leg. Who says the pilots are doing something dangerous?

Most everybody is using GPS now but I have done my share of flagging, standing under those chemicals for cotton and all. We never knew any better. I'm outa here. I fell a nap coming on. LOL

Honest they didn't make this stuff up, but it IS pretty funny flying around at night like that. Sounds more like a Coors or Budweiser lite flight plan then anything else.

RIP to all to bad y'all didn't just keep it in the hangar.
