As a pilot's wife the favorite part of my day today *sarcasm included* was reading about all the fatal airplane crashes in Mr. Kiffer's article "Fatal Plane Crashes Average One a Year."

Though it was a very informative article concerning the crashes in recent history here in Ketchikan, it didn't include, or mention, the thousands (tens of thousands in my best guess) of flights which our pilots complete successfully.

I would have rather read an article recognizing those that did not survive the latest plane crash as Sitnews has done in the past. They deserve our acknowledgement.

Steve and Lesley: There is an entire town praying for you and your family, as well as for Sara, Mindy, little Allison, and those that did not survive. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
