A Learjet crashed short of the Truckee Airport runway yesterday, bursting into a ball of flame, and killing both passangers inside. The plane was attempting to land in wind gusts of up to 40 MPH at the time of the crash. The moral of this story is simple. Drive, but do not fly, up a mountain. The weather on a mountain changes very rapidly. It’s not a good place to try and land unless you are used to landing on aircraft carriers in an F-14, and even then it’s pretty dangerous. Bad move.
