Socata TBM 700 crash in Colorado
« on: March 24, 2014, 10:47:49 AM »
Newbie here. Can someone please try to locate any airway communication regarding a recent crash in Colorado?  The following is the only info I have been able to find...
Fixed wing single engine 1996 model (Socata TBM 700) with N # registered to Gasden Tool, a Rainbow City Corporation.  It is said to have departed from Northeast Regional Airport in Gasden, Alabama on Saturday March 22nd at 8:30 am and left Bartlesville at 12:12 pm in route to Montrose, Colorado.  Crash is believed to have occurred aroun 2:00 pm, 90 feet from shore.  All 5 on board are presumed dead (male pilot, adult female, and 3 boys).  Very very sad :(
Thanks in advance for your help.

We already checked on this incident and could not find any communications with the aircraft.  There are some possible comms on a Denver Center feed where a pilot is conferring with a controller who we can't hear and whose tail number we never actually heard.  So nothing could be verified, unfortunately.

Tks for responding.  Female on board was a very good friend of one of my old high school friends.  Very sad, especially when it hits so close to home. :(
