This was a harsh lesson for all pilots in training
The WPLG News 10 helicopter was scanning a swampy area of the famous Florida Everglades and found the badly wrecked plane along with a dead body floating outside of it. The worst part was the humongous alligator lurking right next to what would be later identified as Mark’s body.
When Robert found out what happened, he said from his own experience that Mark must have experienced “spatial disorientation” in the night sky and lost his bearings completely.
A Horrible Accident
Mark’s roommate Patrick said, “I don’t want to believe that this thing has happened. I don’t want to believe that.” Memorials were held for him at the flight school; Robert hoped this would serve as a harsh lesson that the rules need to be followed. He said, “So that also all the students know how something like this can be so deadly.”
