My squadron lost three aviators today in the EA-6B crash near Spokane. I knew the pilot well...she was young and just recently married.

Tough day. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Greg

You got it Greg. Was just reading the latest and see its near Harrington/Odessa.

Damned shame. Like you I wonder what the hell happened? Pretty flat country out there so something must have happened to the plane.

Our thoughts are with you and the entire squadron.

Man that's rough. I've lost a few good friends in the aviation industry and I always found myself asking how, or why. Great people, fly by the book, but things still happen.

God Bless your friends and prayers to the family. I can't imagine what they must be going through.

My dad (Army Air Corp/Air Force) always taught me to show complete respect towards our military because they are the ones making the sacrifices so that we can be safe. Lately the wars have been pushed to the back as if people have forgotten that we still have men and women serving overseas.

I encourage everyone to check out the Military Channel shows "Ultimate Warfare" about Sperwan Ghar, and National Geographics "Inside Combat Rescue." They are hard to watch but you'll get a better appreciation for what they are doing over there.

http://military.discovery.com/tv-shows/ultimate-warfare

http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/channel/inside-combat-rescue/

Animal Planet has a great show too that I recommend everyone watch. Like it says on the site, "It will warm and break your heart."

http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/02/21/3243869/documentary-about-dogs-at-war.html

Being in the military is a high risk job and I for one appreciate all that they do, and that they give for their country. I will keep them in my prayers, and thanks for letting us know.

So sorry to hear this news. It's always tough to lose shipmates, wherever they are and however well you know them. To lose them from your own command is especially tough. Wish their families and friends all the best.

I'm so sorry to hear this. If anything my time in the service had taught me, it is that those who serve sacrifice so much for their country and should forever be honored and remembered.

My gratitude and sorrow goes out to those affected by this loss.

Happened six miles from where I was working today. I see them out there training all the time. Must of seen 30+ news trucks trying to get there. A lot of confusion when the call went over the scanner. It went out as a mid-air collision with a lear jet. We have had a couple of crop dusters that have had close calls with military jets in the past here in Lincoln County. Sorry to hear about your loss.

Condolences to you, the families, and all who knew these aviators Master Chief.

I truly enjoyed my 1200 hours "wheels up" flying with the greatest air force in the world, The US Navy. The closeness of that community stays with you forever.

Worked VMFA531 for several years. Only lost a couple of aircrew the whole time. They train close to the edge; they have to.

Sorry for your loss. It's tough to take.

God bless.

Both thoughts and prayers for them, and for you too at this difficult time.
When we lose people like these, we're losing our best and brightest.

Smartest guy I ever knew was in the first graduating class at the
Air Force Academy. Dave got jets and was killed in a training flight.
Losing people of this quality is always tougher to take.

Mourn them, but by remembering them, we honor them.

I was USAF back in the mid 60's at a SAC base, and I was always amazed at how many hours that were logged to keeping a keen edge on preparation, and equaly amazed at how few times that tragedy was averted in just this way.
Having served for the short term, I am deeply grateful for the sacrefices that are made by you guys and gals, and just as sad to see this kind of outcome.
My deepest sympathies, and prayers to their families, and to you for the loss of your friends FG

I was throughly discusted with the guy from Odessa that flew around the place in the way for a couple of hours in the guise of helping out.

Then provided pictures to the media. Should have had one of your squadron shot the asshole down.

Glad its not summer cause that is big time rattlesnake country. Lots of times if you stay over night at coffee pot lake you need to stay inside at night cause of them. So hot during the days they sunburn so they come out at night.

Planes and people all over the place when it happened. You could walk up to the site for an extended period of time before the police could blockade people from going in there. I didn't go in there but got all the details from people who did. I think because it is fairly desolate out there, it was difficult to get people there quick enough to keep the public away. Guys from work went to get barricades to shut the roads in and out down. Personally, I think it is a lose lose situation when you have small town volunteer emts and firefighters at the scene when they are totally unprepared or trained for this type of situation. They will be investigating for the next few days and have tents set up at the site. I am working on coffee pot road right now and typically we would get 10 cars a day on that road but today it was well over 100 military personnel and news media and other people who have no business (looky loos) being there.
