Bad News (jet crash)

this really sucks to be writing this, but a friend of my dad was killed about 2 hours ago while he was taking off from the local airport here in Hickory, NC.

the pilot's name is Wyatt Fuller, and he was leaving today to fly to Osh Kosh for an airshow. he was flying his F-86, which was only 1 of 4 still left flying.

the jet crashed during take off when it failed to lift off the ground and ran out of runway and crashed at the end of the runway killing Wyatt.

i'll post some more details when i find out more.

R.I.P. Wyatt Fuller

it's crazy how this day has gone.

my dad called me before noon, and told me to go outside and listen because Wyatt was fixing to take off. i went out and listened and didn't see or hear anything and then i heard sirens. then, my dad called again and said,"i think he crashed".

sure enough, he crashed. it didn't take much longer than 20 minutes before it was on the News and even though the news didn't release a name, i knew for sure it was Wyatt. that was a ****ty feeling.

thanks for the thoughts guys.

My thoughts are with you and yours bro....

I know that feeling. Several years ago on the days leading up to the airshow here at Willow Grove NAS, I'd seen a F-14 up for practice manuevers for the show...and I thought to myself, something just doesn't seem right... but I put it out of my mind. Later I found out that an F-14 had crash landed in the neighborhood adjacent to the base..... Wycke can probably relate the rest of the story as it happened relatively close to where he lives.
