The Navahoe is an Avgas type however…. I’d be hard pressed to find a condition when Jet A1 blows up like that.
I am aware of that mistake I made. Alas too late to edit / delete my earlier post, so disregard. In any case, eyewitness accounts are notoriously unreliable.
eyewitness accounts are notoriously unreliable.
I have a pilot friend who lives in Cascais – the local info is there are no airplane bits outside of the crash site, hence no “blow up” or bits came off the plane prior to impact.
Doesn’t say much…
climbing with increasing left bank (clearance was for a right turn) until stalling and going in.
We’ll have to wait for the final report to make any head or toe out of this.
To you pilots, can I humbly ask, how that kind of tragic accidents, make you, eventually, (re)consider your taste for flying ?
They don’t. I know my time on this planet is limited. By eliminating all risk from my life, I’m not going to live forever, nor would I want to. I want to enjoy my life and that means taking a risk here and there. However I will mitigate the risk as far as possible – so means proper maintenance, proper preflight planning, following checklists etc…
