Safer than driving.  I won't do it because my stomach doesn't like turbulence and small aircraft bounce around too much.

Senator Jim Inhofe's orthopedic surgeon son dies piloting private aircraft in fireball crash outside Tulsa

Controversial Republican Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe has confirmed that his son died in a plane crash on Sunday.

Dr. Perry Inhofe worked as an orthopedic surgeon in Tulsa and was piloting the Mitsubishi MU-2B-25 twin turboprop aircraft that came down five miles from Tulsa International Airport.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman George Brown said authorities confirmed that one person died in the crash which occurred at 3.40 p.m.in a heavily wooded area.

According to flight tracking websites the aircraft took off from Salina, Kansas and was due to land at the airport after a 45 minute flight.

Pilots cleared to land after the fatal crash reported to Tulsa World that the aircraft Dr. Inhofe was flying experienced engine failure.

Witnesses Jake Bray and his uncle, Bryon Fry, were in the woods when the plane crashed about 400 yards away.

'I saw it go over once and don't think anything of it,' Bray said to Tulsa World. 'Then it circled around and I saw one propeller out. Then it nosed down and went down hard.

'It started spiraling out of control and it hit the ground.

'We were talking about trying and maybe pulling the guy out if that was possible.




'It was fully engulfed when we got there and it looked like the wings had come detached. There were tires popping ... There was nothing we could do.'

Dr. Perry Inhofe is an orthopedic surgeon with Central States Orthopedics in Tulsa and received a degree in biomedical engineering and electrical engineering from Duke University in 1984.

I can't tell you how many times I seen things like this with medical doctors flying small aircraft. They can afford high performance planes but can't seem to find the time to invest in learning how to fly the darned things!

Tragic!

That's encouraging to know.

I read it was probably mechanical failure.
