JAMES CHOO WAS A TOP PILOT AND INSTRUCTOR! I THINK THERE IS ALOT MORE HERE THAN MEETS THE EYE. I THINK FOR THE NTSB AND FAA TO SIMPLY RELEASE A STATEMENT THAT BOTH PILOTS ARE GUILTY OF SEE AND AVOID IS INCORRECT AND LACKS THE REAL REASON FOR THE CRASH. TO ME, IT'S A COP OUT. HERE IS A TRUE STORY IN ALL OF THIS. JAMES WAS ON THE PRACTICE AREA FREQUENCY AS REQUIRED AND HAD ANOUNCED HIS POSITION AT LEAST TWO TIMES. THE OTHER PILOT WAS BREAKING IN A NEW ENGINE AND WAS BY HIMSELF. HE WAS THE ONE "BLOWING THROUGHT THE PRACTICE AREA" AS COMMONLY REFFERRED TO BY PILOTS. HE(THE OTHER PILOT) HAS NO KNOWN BRAODCAST ON THE "PRACTICE AREA" FREQUENCY AS REQUIRED. IF YOU GO TO THE AREONAUTICAL CHARTS THAT AREA IS DESIGNATED FOR JUST THAT. JAMES AND THE OTHER PILOT WERE BOTH GOOD MEN AND NOTHING WAS OBVIOUSLY INTENTIONALLY DONE. JAMES WAS MY INSTRUCTOR AND FRIEND. WE WERE TO FLY TOGETHER THE FOLLOWING DAY. I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. I MISS HIM VERY MUCH. BRAD BAIRD-NORWALK,CA

As you see, someone has to take the blame so why not the person who cannot talk to defend themselves?
