As you may know, I am a helicopter pilot and enjoy flying any chance I can in my free time. I was recently at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh airshow in Wisconsin with my brother, Brian. It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that two of my friends, Mark and Tom, were killed in a helicopter crash on Saturday, July 29th, when they were collided into by a gyrocopter. It has been difficult for everyone close to Mark and Tom, especially their families.
My helicopter will be on static display at the Rochester Airshow this weekend in dedication for Mark and Tom and their love for aviation. If you would like to help their families, you can donate to the gofundme page that was created for their families.
I wanted to also share this video that was created in their honor by Dan Millican.
I hope I'll get to see you at the Rochester Airshow this weekend.
If nothing else, please hug your loved ones a little tighter and never pass up the chance to say "I love you".
