Martinaire Grand Caravan collides with paraglider
« on: December 22, 2021, 07:53:53 PM »
"On 21 December 2021, Martinaire flight 685, from Houston-George Bush Intercontinental Airport (TX) to Victoria Regional Airport (TX) and operated by Cessna Grand Caravan N1116N (msn 208B0417), crashed near Fulshear (TX), killing the pilot.

It left Houston at 09:10 local time and reached an altitude of 4,800 feet at 09:22. The Grand Caravan remained at that altitude until it entered a sudden sharp descent at 09:25, according to ADS-B data.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office reported that the aircraft had collided with a paraglider. The paraglider was found dead about five kilometres south of the location where the Cessna crashed.

Sadly, the pilot of the Cessna also perished in the crash.
