The news coming out of upstate NY this morning is indeed heartbreaking. An Angel Flight..with three people on board has crashed. Two people are dead and the pilot is missing and presumed dead.
For those who don't know...Angel Flights is an all volunteer organization that flies seriously ill patients to and from medical treatment appointment. All the pilots associated with this program volunteer their time and for many patients, especially those in rural areas or who can't afford or can't fly commercial airlines the Angel Flight service is a lifeline.
This morning, my thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the crash and their families.
I was lucky enough to meet the guy who runs Angel Flights, NE a few months ago and I learned a lot about this amazing group of people.
