Thus supporting my irrational belief that if you fly around in small aircraft enough times, you will eventually die in a crash, especially if your name is John. Of course, I've thought the same about commercial airlines too--you only have so many crash free flights before you cash it in. I can't figure out why so many business travelers are still alive; I haven't worked out the details yet.
I've met several people who were small craft pilots who later died when their planes crashed, so my perspective is colored by that. This man was flying an experimental, ultralight craft, according to the article.
