  1. Raisbeck Engineering Test Flight Ends In Tragedy
    A test flight that was being carried out on a Cessna Grand Caravan 208B EX ended tragically. The aircraft which was leased to engineering/modification company Raisbeck Engineering was conducting flights to evaluate and garner aircraft performance data before a modification was made. The data from this flight was likely to be utilized as the 'control' to compare information to when the Raisbeck Engineering modification would have been made. Below is a look at the crash site as seen on 'King-TV'.
  2. The crash actually happened on November 18th killing four persons onboard. A flight test director, Instrumentation engineer and the two Raisbeck test pilots perished in the crash. The aircraft left Renton municipal airport at around 9:24 am on the 18th and the last recorded information on the flight was at around 10:19 am. The aircraft crashed in the Snohomish County area. "All the members of the Raisbeck family are devastated by this tragic accident," Raisbeck president Hal Chrisman said in a statement. "And while Raisbeck feels this loss deeply, we cannot begin to imagine the loss and pain of the families and other loved ones of these crewmembers." Below is a screen grab of the final moments of that flight.
