Mr. and Mrs. Bishop,

I am sorry for your loss. No matter what your son's intentions were in the last few moments of his life, it is a tragic loss. It is my sincere hope that the circumstances of his death will not cause you a long-term burden, in public or in private.

Without judging the reasons behind your son's actions, it is obvious that he had some internal turmoil which took everyone by surprise. I pray that in his last moments, Charles was able to find some peace amidst the violence.

Please accept my most sincere condolences.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Stapleton
Cleveland, OH, USA

Living here in Tampa, this has hit me hard. I see that hole in the building as I drive to work each morning. My condolences to the family.  Sad


Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

Charles could have prevented this accident.

He must have had some serious problems with his head, you will not find a student pilot just go and take off without permission.

I feel quite bad for the family involved here and all loved ones, but not him. He was an idiot who choose to take his own life and screw up a lot of others. I nominate him for a Darwin award. Maybe if he knew he was going to be a laughing stock and not a hero he would've choose another cowardly way to take his life, yet in any case, he does not deserve any more respect than sewer scum.

I'd like to thank him for thinning out the gene-pool. The only gratitude I have is that no innocent people were killed.

well said Flyf15 and rapo. The kid deserves no sympathy! His parents yes. But if anyone feels bad for him then something is wrong here! He is no different then the scum bags that flew into the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and the field out in PA. Why have any memorial for someone that flys an airplane into a building?!? This makes no sense at all!

I'm not big on half assed X/Y charts to cross reference how much pity to offer up someone.

Osama bin Laden and Mohammed Atta were just smart enough to achieve a pity-less state called evil.

This kid didn't appear to be evil. Just very messed up. Thus I pity him. Sympathy?...well, it seems like he hurt a helluva lotta people, if not actually in the target he drilled into. So my sympathy goes to them.

At the very least, this kid did something that COULD have been done by someone genuinely evil, heading for a far more precious target.

Show me the Coast Guard chopper not equipped with a high powered rifle today as opposed to last week...

Show me the air controller who hasn't refined his or her threat perception...

Show me a general aviation community that isn't now saying to themselves "yknow maybe planes should have better LOCKS..."

Badness always has a an equal and opposite reaction. Charles killed himself and punched a nasty but easily fixed hole in a building. That's it. Unlike 9/11, the positives that may come from this substantially outweigh the price that was paid.

My sympathy with the parents - although I do wonder how he got to the stage he did. Lets be thankful we don't have these types of problems


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Yes, KROC, I'm serious. Ok, maybe I meant sympathy for his family and friends, but there are grieving, confused people out there. I'm not saying to forget what the kid did. Just have some compassion for his family (especially his grandmother, who took him for the lesson.)

I feel sorry for his family in the sense they lost there son, grandson, ect. I can't feel too sorry, because I don't know how this kids life was. Also, I don't feel the least bit of sympathy for Charles himself.

sympathy for him... ummmm... Does anyone feel sympathy for the the gits that fly'ed into the Trade Centre? I dont.
As for a Charles memorium forum.... NO! We may as well have a forum for the best terrorist. No person who wants to kill people deserves any sympathy.

This kid was no Al Qaeda member. He was a simple 15 year old kid attending a high school, with some problems. There are many kids in this forum in this boys EXACT same situation.

The bottom line is that he shouldn´t have been allowed
to fly in the first case, nor hang around hang airplanes. Seem like flight schools have to inforce stricter rules,
perhaps limit the areas where airplane training are allowed.

ILS, but these boys on this forum are not jacking a plane to crash it into a building. Dude had something wrong other than the everyday teenage Lubcha problems.

"ILS, but these boys on this forum are not jacking a plane to crash it into a building"

That's exactly what this kid was! He was a boy with problems, and he did jack a plane.

ILS, the difference. Lubcha is not at his local airfield taking off in a Cessna looking for the closest 40 plus story building to plow into.

KROC, this kid never posted "My Life Sucks" threads. I am sure that if he crashed into a building, then his life sucked. Lubcha obviously had enough problems that were bigger than this kids to post his problems. So Lubchas problems are greater than this kids problems meaning that people like this will do some really freaky stuff.

Damn I screwed that one up. Must be the Vodka talking.

ILS, the ones that talk about there issues are usually not the ones to worry about. Besides, I had no idea you and Charles were such good buddies that you knew what was going on in his life. My bad. I guess I won't say anything more. Oh, and wern't the Trench Coat Mafia of Columbine fame "quiet" as you say?

This is sickening. I will give him NO sympathy!

Were his parents paying ANY attention to him? Did they care? I'd like to know how he was brought up.

Any how, this individual will go down into American history as a loser and a terrorist--an appropriate description.

I don't think many people on here realize the extent to which he has negatively affected general aviation.
