RNZAF CT-4 Airtrainer crashes near Ohakea, Pilot dies.

My condolances to the family and friends of Squadron Leader Nick Cree, Royal New Zealand Air Force.

Turns out my wife knows his wife through an Internet forum. The world is too small, and a good officer like this one should not have been taken from us in this tragic manner.

RIP.

[Edit: In related news, a local Helicopter Pilot used a remarkable amount of forethought in assisting this way. Good man!!]
