Grant I fly from Newark to Pitts several times every year to hang with my Audiophile dad and almost always in that exact model of plane for Cont Airliines, makes you wonder for sure!
Gerry Niewood, one of the musicians in the band who died in the crash, is the husband of one of the women (Gurley Niewood) I sing with in my church choir. He was a really nice person and a fine musician. My heart goes out to his wife and children.
