National / Bonita Springs FL Small Aircraft Crash
« Last post by kfd274 on Today at 05:33:45 PM »
A small aircraft crashed into the woods in Bonita Springs Florida late this morning.  The crash site is in the southern  and eastern most part of Lee County, along the Collier County border. The area is about 1000 feet north of the eighth hole of the Bonita National Golf and Country Club. Emergency vehicles are stationed at the end of my street. and near hole 7.

Responding  are:

Engine 24 and Brush 24
Ladder 26  (newly established company with a new 75 foot Pierce rearmount)
Engine 22
and Tower ladder 25 (out of service) crew responding in reserve  Engine 29
Batallion 20 Chief
Chief of Department Joseph Daigle

From Southwest Florida Airport

Engine 93
Batallion 90

Lee County Sheriff helicopter
3 Lee County Deputies

It took time to locate the crash site since the brush and woods is so heavy.

It is my understanding that there was only one person in the aircraft, the pilot, who is reported deceased.  RIP,+Bonita+Springs,+FL+34135/@26.3022836,-81.6786322,11.79z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x88db0510edb04657:0xe161ff349f2c265a!8m2!3d26.3300865!4d-81.6618224

It is my understanding that the crash site is secured and awaiting the FAA from Tallahassee FL.

The only thing she didn't say is the now famous and over used......."I'm having a panic attack!"

Off the top of my head, there are 13 tillers, leaving 130 ladder companies.
I don't have a copy of the Department's Unit Location Chart, so I don't know how many of the remaining are rear mounts and tower ladders. I'd estimate about 60% rear mounts and 40% tower ladders.
Does anyone have the exact number?
I figure the spare fleet would roughly reflect the same proportion of rear mounts to towers.

Speaking of cable tv, when it was first being introduced they heralded that it would be entirely commercial free. Now it seems it's all commercials and 20 minutes of show. And they have the gall to charge astronomical prices to boot. >:(
