To the idiot saying it was the woman pilot's fault--you're a a-hole. The plane had mechanical problems, nothing a pilot can do about that, duh!

I went to Junior High & High School with Chris Baker. I heard he just got married and had a baby. Anyone know if this is true? God bless you Chris...you made it so far from the "little" town of Roseville.
