Lance Hooley & the Ez-Jet lost in crash at Covington :-(

Recommended Posts

The NTSB had a press conference on it.  Apparently a wing departed the aircraft.

I spoke w/Lance last year about his passion for jet-powered canards.  He was quite the character and I could barely keep up with him even over the phone.  He will surely be missed.  RIP Lance.

:unsure: Losing a wing is tough - not much you can do with that. 
Also, very unusual for a canard type to lose a wing, I hope there is enough remaining to definitively determine why. Lance et al were keen to emphasize that the aircraft was very different from a Long, so perhaps there is something there... hopefully lessons will be learned that will make us all better off somehow.
