I took 'crazy friends from the North' as a compliment and put Grant McConachie  in that category.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grant_McConachie

For a good read, try  A Bush Pilot With A Briefcase; The Happy-Go-Lucky Story of Grant McConachie. (1972 - Doubleday, Toronto & New York)
ISBN 0-385-07049-7, by Ronald Keith.

but I think this Yavuz Berke might not be operating on all cylinders.

It was from our crazy friends to the north

Yeah, unlike our crazy friends from the south, who, through American flight schools, and inept customs officials that let the terrorists into you country, to
train and fly not 172's, but 767's into the WTC.  You are really getting tiresome with your ignorance.

I think you went a little too far on this one Thult33.

Enough with the insults, please.  I do not want to be forced to lock this thread.

Sorry Dave.  Sounds like Mr Burke/Leon may be overburdened.

From CTV:

Confederation College said Leon had access to Cessna training planes and security at the facility was not compromised.
It said Leon was readmitted to the program in the fall after failing in 2007, and that he passed his cross-country solo flying test last week.

"His faculty speak very highly of him," she said. "Everyone likes him. He was a very good student. He was very engaged in class. He asked great questions so he was an all-around good student."


It's also commendable that U.S. authorities reacted the way they did and handled the matter as they would any other potential suicide, with considerable constraint and compassion.

from CTV:

"He was actually in a little better spirits than I thought he would be for a person who was suicidal," Watson said. "He seemed to want to talk and for people to know why he had done what he had done."

He also was hungry. Troopers ordered pizza for him after he said he had gone 24 hours without eating, Watson said.
