AirNet II Baron USC247 Crash outside St. Louis


Well-Known Member

N585CK which used to be N1859K.
Conflicting reports on 1 or 2 on board.

I always hold my time at AirNet very closely.

A couple years ago I heard 247 come on center frequency in the middle of the night as I was flying to Sacramento well above the crappy weather below. I reached out to them over a different frequency and chatted for about 5 minutes about AirNet of the past vs. today. Who knows if it was the same pilot.
RIP fellow Starchecker.

Airnet was bought several years ago by Doug Kalitta, hence the CK tail number. During my interview here a few years ago, everybody that saw my resume had to tell me how Doug owns it now.

RIP Starcheckers! I’ll pour one out for you when I have a beer here soon, like I did during my time at Airnet.
