Yeah, yer a little late with this one. In case you don't know still.. it was a single engine aircraft known as a Piper Tomahawk. Owned and Flown by David Edmonds of Edmonds Aviation based at the air base in Newport. He really should try a pre-flight inspection which would have included the draining of water that had accumulated in the fuel system. He got LUCKY this time!

I bet they never filed a flight plan. Its so dangerous to not file a flight plan.
