I was listening to OSH ATC in the background this morning and when I tuned in I could tell that something was amiss. They had runway 27 closed and had opened up a taxiway adjacent to 36 to handle the excess load. The controller sounded more serious than normal and the friendly banter was absent from the chatter.
Turns out that a Lancair Legacy had a problem on final for 27 this morning, impacted/landed short and came to rest upside down which resulted in the deaths of the two occupants.
I've selected a missing man formation as the image for this entry for obvious reasons.
A Tri Pacer had a problem yesterday, but thankfully there were only minor injuries with that mishap.
