    I'm sorry if your friends was some of them. :(

    weird.... you would think a bunch of skydivers would have bailed if the plane was going down, no? i dunno... just seems fishy.

    all the best

    at this point the only peace to really hold onto is they died doing something they wanted to do. . . i still hope for some survivors though... :(

    So I just read that Andy was found, alex' twin that I was trying to call was in the wreckage. But I'm seeing a lot of posts that cecil, and alex are still missing. Alex and Andy are twins. All three went to my high school, and alex, and cecil both go to western. I was un aware they were both on the plane, I'm not sure what's going on. I'm reading a lot of contradicting stories, and I'm completely lost up here.

    A camper said the plan was flying very low, no one probably expected for it to crash - hence no one jumping out of the plane.


    This is pretty scary considering I'm setting up a skydiving trip, as we speak.


    Best regards Jordan and I hope your friends turn out to be okay.

    And this happened at night if I'm not mistaken.. CNN said they were on the way to a big skydiver meeting, so its entirely possible that they weren't suited up, but just riding in.

    I assume the worst has been discovered?

    Thats tragic but hopefully they went out after doing something they were passionate about and love - at least thats the way I hope I go down.

    Update:


    Thanks guys for the support.

    I saw my buddy alex, andy's twin the other day on campus. Gave him a big hug and stuff. Probably get him over for poker/partying this weekend and go see the fam or something.





    This is just still surreal though.
