    Re: Three Tesla execs die in a plane crash

    Very sad, I live very close to where this crash occured. I noticed the lights flicker at the time of the crash while I was taking a shower this morning. On my way to work the stop lights were all out. We had no power in the office so I'm working from home now. I am very sorry to hear this is the reason behind the outage.


    Re: Three Tesla execs die in a plane crash

    Tragic indeed but amazing that, having taken out three houses and a Day Care Centre, no one on the ground was injured.

    Can't think why small aircraft even take off in heavy fog...

    Re: Three Tesla execs die in a plane crash

    Power was just restored to my house  an hour ago. Tragically ironic that an electric car company engr took out the entire city of  Palo Alto's electrical grid ( where many Teslas reside  and couldn't be charged for use today ) for 11 hrs .

    OTOH, the massive power towers and transmission wires are just beyond the  end of  the small Palo Alto Airport runway ,at the edge of  SF Bay ,and the local utility people sure acted today  like they never anticipated that this could happen and have in place a plan for  power re-route in the eventual  scenario as happened today .

     

    Pics of the day care play area with charred objects show what would have happened just minutes later when all the kids started arriving, as the crash occurred just before they opened , at 7:54 AM.

    I was also surprised by the lack of preparedness for such an event. Stanford Medical Center had to revert to backup generators which eventually failed leaving only battery power for people on life support etc. Apparently whoever was in charge of the FAA investigation would not allow PG&E to repair the power lines until they had concluded their investigation  Ridiculous! Very lucky about the day care center though.

    I guess they never saw the Charles lindbergh movie starring Jimmy Stewart.

     

     

    I would say NEVER fly in a small airplane or private jet. Stick to large commercial whenever possible.


    Re: Three Tesla execs die in a plane crash

    Its very rare to have both engine failure in a twin engine plane. Most likely the crash occurs because of poor visibility. Those electric tower can very deadly during IFR condition.
