From first reports, it looks like another case of CFIT. The EC135 is a very capable IFR machine, and my personal preference when I'm in an IFR capable machine is to file and fly IFR if the weather is even a little iffy, often even if it isn't, just for practice. I wasn't there, though, so I won't comment further.

It is a very sad situation and I feel for the families and friends. We will have to wait to hear the final result of the accident. Although I am sure weather played a big role.


My prayers to the families.
