Roy Halladay crashed and died in an ICON A5

A fantastic pitcher, hall of famer to be sure, dies while flying one of these questionable planes that require pilots/owners to sign a contract that prevents them from criticizing the airplane. Ummm... Thoughts? (www.espn.com) More...

I think the Icon A5 is a pretty incredible plane actually. I of course have no way of knowing yet, but I suspect that it will be a case of pilot error. This was a pretty new plane to him. I know he was a great picture for my home town team of the Bluejays and from all accounts a great person too. RIP Doc.

And where did you get that info nothing in the story about it or are you one who reports FAKE news?

His baseball contract prevented him from being the pilot of an aircraft.

Calling it a questionable aircraft is kind of dumb as the crash which killed two in CA was pilot error completely read about it. They flew into an area they could not get out of. Happens with other AC including large passenger planes.
