The Parallax View: It's an E-Ticket Ride

In a tragic accident, Missouri Governor and Senatorial hopeful Mel Carnahan died October 16 when a twin-engine Cessna 335 impacted terrain just south of St. Louis in nighttime IMC conditions. Shortly prior to the crash, the pilot reported that he was experiencing trouble with his primary attitude indicator and stated that he would try to use the co-pilot's attitude indicator. The final report that the NTSB will issue many months from now may or may not shed any light on the accident cause but those in the know understand that the accident pilot may have taken an E-ticket ride on "The Parallax View."
