Minden Air P2 Crash

Sun Oct 05, 2003 8:22 am

Just read on the airtanker message board that yesterday Minden Air's P2 water bomber "Tanker 99" crashed on its way from Arizona to California, killing the crew on board.
The crash seems to have happened near San Bernadino, and not during a fire-fighting mission.

I hate it when this happens (a crash), especially one I have seen in real life:
