My heart goes out to the Foster family.

Mike's dad (the pilot) was a very experineced pilot he apparently had been flying his own private plane for over 30 Years. Furthermore he had flown through bad conditions countless times and was very skilled at using his instruments, Unlike JFK jr. I also have to add that although it was snowing and the visiblity was very bad, Penticton had given the plane O.K. to land. In fact it as on their decent that the plane just crashed. I am hoping it was a plane malfunction as opposed to pilot error.
Now I realize he is not responsible and the horrible truth that he died as well along with Mike and his mom. Maybe we should not be so quick to judge the pilot without knowing the details. Unfortunately because of the severity of the crash no one may ever know the details
I wouldn't sell the NTSB short; their investigations are very thorough, and if necessary, they will airlift the crashed aircraft out piece by piece and reassemble it in order to determine the cause of accident. My original advice still holds - if you're flying with a private pilot, check his log!
