Truly heartbreaking news to hear, as a lifelong resident in Boise who can attest to the indelible impact he had on the community. In addition to bringing thousands of tech jobs to the treasure valley, he was also an avid aviator, and performed at airshows here in Idaho. He was very energetic and passionate. A very sad loss for us.

Wonder if this is another classic example of stalling when turning back after an engine failure which we are taught not to consider unless you have no other choice.

Indeed. Continuing straight ahead (not second guessing this accident as there is not enough information) is much easier said than done. I wonder if I would have the discipline to do it. When I visit a new airport I am going to be flying out of for a while I try to make a mental note of straight ahead landing sites; golf course, farm field, even a water feature.

Also at airports with long runways (flying a light aircraft) I would always take the "full length" so that I get plenty of height up before crossing the perimeter fence 'just in case' the worst were to happen.
