One killed in N. Ga. plane crash
#1 Nov 6, 2006
I cannot believe that that had happened. My sympathy to the family of the person. I heard of the crash earlier today and i know people that ride in planes. all of my family is wanting to know who the person was. I hate to say but hopefully it isnt noone we know. I am sorry for the loss. i know how it feels to lose someone in an un natural manner.

The man was our good friend Charley Laing. He was my husband's friend for life. He died doing what he loved most, on his way to the business in FL that he had dedicated himself to. He was a great friend, an accomplished pilot, a man who lived life just as he wanted, and one who will be missed by a great many people. He leaves a wife, 3 children, 6 grandchildren, his beloved bijon Chloe, and a great many friends, including my husband, his friend since boyhood. He was 52.

Hello Again Irma.
I just wanted to express my appreciation to you for caring who this person was. I had neglected to say thank you in my earlier post. It's been a rough week, in the wake of losing Charlie. The funeral is today. I will let his wife, Kathy, know that you cared enough to express your concerns.

With the heat today it makes flying very very challenging. I flew yesterday and the take off performance was dismal at best. I was not even close to max weight. I fought my plane from the runway all the way to 3000 feet until the air was thinner (and cooler) and I could lean out the engine to gain more performance. My mistake was that the density altitude was over 3700 feet (altitude corrected for heat and humidity) on the ground and I could have leaned the engine on the runway for better performance. The heat saps engine power and the plane may not of made enough power to take off especially if he just took on fuel. My condolences to the pilot and his family. As stated, he lived a full and great life and left this world doing what he loved.
