It on the news here in Tampa. It was a Lear Jet ambulance flight out of St.Pete/Clearwater (PIE) The patient died and the crew of 3 was hospitalized. The patient was an elderly man. I have several friends that are pilots for this air ambulance company out of PIE. I hope it wasn't any of them.  Sad
I believe I can fly.....

The link says that the only victim to die was the female patient on board! It's not important whether the victim was male or female or whether it was a Learjet 35, Citation X, Gulfstream II or that crashed but that somebody must get there s#@t together before reporting the story.
