Didn't that golfer die in a plane crash a few years ago that wore the knickers?

We are always seeing doctors, lawyers and rich folk fly these planes into the ground.

2:48, I've never seen a plane crash that wore knickers. I've seen golfers wear knickers, however. And I think the blogmaster was indicating those he was unaware of, meaning he was a aware of the knicker-wearing plane crash. And 3:34, the reason it seems that only doctors, lawyers, and rich folks fly planes into the ground is fairly obvious, it's the same reason you don't see too many homeless guys or Wal Mart employees flying them into the ground.

I think Davey's death was in a helicopter crash as he was leaving Talledega Speedway

3:34, Every time I look outside, I see a plane crash. I heard a reporter say on the radio that in almost all plane crashes the plane loses altitude. I don't know what happened to the ones that didn't lose altitude.

Are doctors, lawyers and rich folk worse pilots than homeless guys and China Outlet Mart workers? You would think it would be the other way around.

Also, members of the Wichita State University died in a plane crash years ago--don't know the year.

Didn't the US Olympic figure skating team die in a crash a number of years ago?
