Crash of Conair T-692 (May 22, 2015)

Last Friday, May 22 2015, a Conair AT-802 Fireboss crashed in northern Alberta near the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range not far from the border with Saskatchewan. The SEAT’s pilot (and sole occupant), William Hilts (38 years old, recently from Cranbrook British Columbia) died in the crash. I understand that the SEAT was working a wildfire near Cold Lake last Friday when she went down.

Please join me in offering my condolences, thoughts and prayers to William’s family, friends, colleagues. and all who love him. William, I know that you are flying in favorable tail winds.
