On a beautiful Sunday morning in May, an experienced pilot and flight instructor made an uneventful flight back to southern Ohio in a Cessna 210 with three friends on board after a weekend in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Another airplane, a Piper PA-28 Archer, was along on this annual trip with the two co-owner pilots up front and two passengers in the back. Home base for both airplanes was a small country airport, and the guy flying the Archer was a former student of the guy flying the faster, more powerful Cessna. But the PA-28 didn’t leave Myrtle Beach with the Cessna that morning. Opting to stay at the beach as long as possible, they departed in the late afternoon, crossed some rough mountainous terrain after nightfall and arrived back in Ohio late in the evening. The Piper owner/pilot had been licensed for several years, but it was common knowledge that he rarely flew; in fact, he’d logged little, if any, time since making the same trip to South Carolina the year before.
