The announcement arrived shortly after I had reluctantly typed up Sydney Seaplanes crash from NYE2017, which wiped out a whole family...
Very bad, as it hit a very famous and rich business CEO and instantly yielded another round of media coverage from all the large outlets.

I could not bring myself to start the year with two accident reports. :(

Since it happened on New Years Eve, it will be in 2017 statistics.

Update as to possible cause of the crash.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/in ... spartandhp

Having spent time in Costa Rico, I would not be surprised if the Grand Caravan with 12 on board and tourist luggage was well over weight.

I did some Part 135 C-402 flying in the islands in the early 90s and stopped due to what the operators wanted done.

MSN again beats the birds out of the tree with the verbatim quote of Russian nanny Olga.

What a piss poor bunch of useless pricks!
