I’ve know Deane for a long time.  I first got to know him when he was flying F-16s in the Fort Smith, AR guard.  Terrible news to say the least.  Many thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family for the loss of their daughter.

The article lists the accident aircraft as a PA-28R-300. That is a niche low-volume one-off export-licensed military trainer called the Pillán. (PA-32 fuselage based, tandem seating trainer, much in the same way as the T-34 was based on the BE-33/35 Bonanza airframe). So likely a typo. They probably meant PA-32R-300, aka Piper Lance. Retract version of the cherokee Six.

Condolences to the family.

Some of the folks from my CAP squadron who were on-scene said all the news articles about it were rife with errors.  Not surprising given what passes for journalism these days.  Anyways, condolences...
