We recently featured aircraft pilot Mike Patey on RTM when he and two wingsuit pilots pulled off one incredible stunt. Mike is back, but this time with the unfortunate news of the crashing of his beloved plane, Draco. Crosswind conditions made for a difficult takeoff, one that Draco the plane sadly did not survive. Thankfully, nobody was hurt in the incident, but Mike is giving a candid look at the event in attempts to show others what they can learn from the situation. Despite the tragic loss of Draco, we're just glad Mike is OK.
