Very sad with what had happened. Am surprised that the power plants are turbo props.

Just an update.. N142PA is in the hangar being inspected/fixed and will be the only Mallard near ready to fly once the FAA signs off on the wingspar inspection.. N130FB is no where near airworthy... may Chalks fly for another 87 years

I was reading the September issue of Flying in the barbershop the other day and they had a little two page nostalgia piece on these aircraft. A lot of the article was about Chalk. It was kind of eerie.

My family and I flew on N2969 at Thanksgiving '05. Amazing experience and would do it again without hesitation. Still... erie to know this (our) plane was the one that went down just four weeks later. Our pilot for the return flight was at the controls of this plane when it crashed. So sad, but she told us she had the best job in the world. Good luck, Chalks!

Tail number n2969 i worked this crash and it brings back memories knowing that i flew this same plane to Bimini Bahamas 2 weeks before her wing fell apart in mid flight. Chalks sold its fleet of Mallards and now seaport Miami is no a museum of seaplanes including a G21 Goose which i had the pleasure to fly. Bless you Captain Michelle Marks RIP
