Icon A5 designer accident was pilot error for flying into a box canyon too narrow to safely turn around in and too high to climb out of. Pilot error. After looking at video of Halladay pre-crash it sure looked like he was flying aggressively, low and fast with very little margin for error. Probably will be determined as pilot error again. Icon A5 has been thouroughly tested and proven to be a fine aircraft. Unfortunately the "it's the tool" arguement (like with guns) rather than the "it's the tool USER' arguement leaps first to people's minds and , unfortunately, lips.
I'm not sure he ever said, "He got what he deserves" in the actual audio, either. It's definitely inferenced a few times (at least in listening, I never heard those words spoken).Felger has always been the idiot of Sports Talk, but this is new heights/lows even for him. He's misinformed all around and compunds his own stupidity with his ridiculous sound effects. Halliday paid the price for his mistake, and I truly believe he is at fault, but Felger's WAYYYYY off the mark with his remarks COMPLETELY aside from their callousness. No amount of explanation is ever going to be good enough because he truly made no remark that was accurate except that it isn't the plane's fault. That much is true. The rest, pure idiocy. WEEI isn't the radio station that he works for, either. it's 98 Sports Hub. His job had best be on the line. He was as offensive as I've ever heard anyone. Not just to the deceased, but to those of us who do love flying and know what we're doing and love having the window open while flying. Because it's not his cup of tea, he feels it necessary to take a shot at anyone else who loves it? AND ON TOP OF IT... COMPLETELY disrespect the deceased. This man is on par with child molesters in terms of respect goes.
It is soooooo sad, these type of persons, in today's world, lack of respect, can you imagen the way they treat themselves and their families, soooooo sorry for themWhen you hear of American, even disrespect their own President, what can you expect of them with other human being.Americans weake up before it won't be anything left of what the USA used to be, not even crumbs, because those are going to be eaten by the crows
what the hell is wrong with people now days??? 😡 i was raised to respect those who have passed away. I wont let anyone speak ill of my ex after he passed. Its wrong. They can no longer defend themselves.
It be a safe bet to say the baseball player pushed his luck, especially knowing the plane had safety issues, i personally wouldnt fly my own self, knowing i had little experience, and that i had soo much to live for..mi think i d keep my feet on the ground!
The icon A5 didn't kill it's designer/inventor. He died of a crash in one, but it was more likely due to pilot error or mis-judgment. It seems that there has not been much testing on the aircraft to explore it's particular flight parameters and capabilities.
what rock do all these idiots crawl out from under? They have no hearts, no souls, no ethics, no morals...I REALLY want to be a fly on the wall when they have to stand before their creator and explain their actions and realize their fate!
It kinda sounds like he would argue against any sport or activity that isn't baseball, golf, or tennis with everything he targeted.
