Two killed in Santa Monica plane crash... My friend was flying...
Just got some terrible news, the general manager of another website I'm a member of, and a man I consider a friend was killed this afternoon at the Santa Monica Airport.
Rest in Peace, Paulo!
Two people were killed when their single-engine acrobatic plane crashed shortly after takeoff Wednesday from Santa Monica Airport and burst into flames.
The red, two-seat Marquetti airplane crashed about 5 p.m. at the west end of the runway, police and airport officials said. The identities of the two victims were being withheld until family members could be notified.
Witnesses said the plane was immediately in trouble.
Christa Worthy was driving along Donald Douglas Loop, which circles the airport runways, heading home to West Los Angeles when she saw the plane about 500 feet in the air with its nose up. "The aircraft slowed down and began to roll and head straight down," she said. "I knew there was no way he was going to survive that."
One man, who lives about 100 yards from the crash site, said he also watched the plane fall.
"I saw this red plane just go nose down," said the resident, who did not want to be identified. "Then a big crash and fire and smoke."
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the accident.
At least I know he died doing something he truly enjoyed, his passion in life.Alpha Phi Sigma Alum - Alpha Delta Chapter

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
