Talked with Terry Sobo who was on the scene. He explained to me that the helicopter was side ways about 100 feet in front of Pure Platinum taking some head shots. Then for some reason tripped and unfortunatly went down. Bob Teauge did manage to avoid the helicoter and ran over some of the debris. I wont mention names, not my place. My heart and deepest simpathies go out to all the families involved. I'm very sorry this had to happen. God Bless.

I just spoke with those at Powerboat and they really appreciate the thoughts and prayers. They are getting a huge volume of calls that can't be answered right now. Please give them some space and time to get through this. A very big part of the PBM family is gone and it is a very sad day.

Thoughts and prayers to families involved.
If the rumors are correct, the Powerboat family has a huge hole today.
God Speed.
