I just wanted to thank you
for your treatment of the article on Stephen Freeman. It
was perhaps one of the best articles that I have ever read in
a newspaper. I work for the same Aviation Law Enforcement
Agency that Mr. Freeman was employed by. And while I never
met him I had heard only good things about him. I think
your article did a great job describing him as a person.
Especially the possibility that his demise may have been motivated
by his desire to minimize danger to the Sitka residents from
his crippled aircraft. Mr. Freeman has the reputation in
our Agency of being just the kind of person/pilot to think about
the people on the ground before abandoning his aircraft.
and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Sitnews.
