Fatal plane crash near Tofino, B.C., raises possible issues

  Fatal plane crash near Tofino, B.C., raises possible issues RICHMOND, B.C. — An investigation into a fatal plane crash north of Tofino, B.C., last December has raised potential safety issues for other pilots. The plane went down as the pilot and only person in the Cessna 172H was conducting air sampling for an American government project examining greenhouse gas. The Transportation Safety Board says the pilot died and the plane was destroyed when it crashed into woods in steep terrain in Stewardson Inlet, about 40 kilometres north of Tofino.

A body has been found in the desert close to the spot where a pilot disappeared after crash -landing during the war. It is thought he died while making a futile attempt to walk out of the desert. The P40 Kittyhawk plane has been removed from the desert and locked in a storage crater in El Alemain.

But how has 'Doctor Who ' managed to survive for this long? What sets it apart from other amazing shows that are now over? Another reason the show has been running for so long is that there is no main storyline, it is very much episodic, each episode telling a story of a separate adventure.

"It basically felt like he was here every single day, and the guy was a really hard worker," Fisher says. "But he was also a really hard worker at home. I think that's probably what the best thing about Sean would be, would be him as a father and a husband."

Fredrickson and his son Hayden loved soccer and often visited Providence Park to catch a Portland Timbers game.

"He's just like a kid, he always liked to do fun things," Fisher says of Fredrickson's outings with his son. "They would take one of those little scooters around to go get ice cream and scoot around downtown Portland."

Fredrickson — who leaves behind his wife, 46-year-old April Fredrickson — always found a way to balance family time and his responsibilities at the club, and he'd often work long days to make sure he could fit in everything.

"Sean was very, very proud of his son," Fisher says. "He played soccer growing up, and his son was a really good soccer player at Newberg High School. So Sean would be here at 5 a.m. on a Saturday and he'd leave for a couple of hours and go catch the game, then he'd be back to finish up a tournament. I mean, that was him. He was just nonstop."

But Fisher says he was "proud" when Fredrickson finally requested vacation days to spend time with family this past weekend. He never could have anticipated the tragedy that would follow.

Fisher says the club will soon be announcing programs in honor of Fredrickson that will focus on promoting diversity and inclusion, which were important to him. It will be a fitting tribute to someone who cared about so many.

"He's that type of person that puts everyone else first before him," Fisher says of his late friend. "His passion for people and making people happy was just contagious."
