Cessna Down Amid Rotary Flying Tour
Four members of a Rotary Club flying fellowship were lost Monday
when their Cessna 182 went down in the Long Island Sound near New
London, CT, authorities said. The aircraft, part of a 22-plane
tour, was headed from Maine to Groton-New London Airport.
It happened just before 1400 in dense fog, according to the
Coast Guard. One boater said he heard the plane's engine cut out,
then heard a loud "bang."
Authorities recovered the bodies just 20-minutes after the
mishap and were going about the business of notifying the victims'
families Monday night. The aircraft was owned by Herbert Rollins
III of Phoenix, AZ.
"He's been a pilot for a very long time," said Lucinda Pyne,
governor-elect of Rotary District 5510 in Arizona. She was quoted
by the Associated Press. "This is someone who is extremely skilled,
not someone who just got their pilot's license."
Rollins, a retired dentist, generally flew with his wife,
Patricia who was also a member of the club. "I don't know that's
the case here, but I'm guessing they would have been together,"
Pyne told the wire service.
