    Quite keen to hear any additional details as they come to hand on this, as I believe we flew in the same machine earlier that morning immediately before the incident. Have just gotten off the hill this evening and heard/read about what happened, bloody scary stuff. Hope everyone's on the mend.

    Caught a skid? Where did that theory come from?
    Must have rolled a ways to break bones.
