BC Navajo Crash

I know I'm not the first to report this, but it's worth acknowledging the loss of anyone in our aviation community. On Friday, a Piper Navajo (or as the Canadian Press reported, a "Navaho") crashed while trying to make an emergency landing at CFB Comox on Vancouver Island. The brief newpaper article reported that an engine fire may have led to the crash. Reportedly, the PA-31 was a cargo aircraft, so no passengers were on board.
