Second Person Dies after EAA Seaplane Crash

A second person has died after
a seaplane crashed last week while leaving the Experimental Aircraft
Association show in Oshkosh.
The E-A-A said Thursday that Ray Johnson of Marshall, Minnesota
died at a hospital on Monday. The crash also killed 71-year-old Diane Linker of
Sauk Rapids, Minnesota, and a third person
escaped with non life threatening injuries from a crash that happened last
Thursday night as the seaplane was heading back to Minnesota. Winnebago County
sheriff’s officials say the craft took off in choppy waters, and it barely
gained altitude at 80 miles-an-hour when it might have hit a large wave before
flipping. The National Transportation Safety Board is expected to take up to
one year to determine the exact cause of the crash.
