RIP Sirs.
Keep your mouth shut and listen. That is the best piece of advice I have been given.

There was an OG Commander's Call today that discussed the mishap that occurred back in March. I was flight planning at the time and didn't make the Commander's Call, but one of the other pilots attended and brought back some information.

From what I could grasp of how it was worded (again, I heard this second hand from another pilot): they had a complete hydraulics failure on final, performed an emergency gear extension, and then attempted to complete a maneuver (to maintain currencies-- not too sure what the maneuver was). This resulted in over-banking the aircraft past 30 degrees with slow airspeed, and caused the aircraft to spiral down to a crash.

Again, this was second hand info relating to why the crash happened.

RIP Airmen.
