Andre responds to crash report


Today the NTSB reported that Andre Bauer was in part responsible for his plane crash because he failed to abort the abort after a slow takeoff.  Here is Andre’s response:

Statement of Lt. Governor Bauer
“I am grateful to the people of South Carolina for their prayers and well-wishes during my recovery — both for myself and my co-pilot — and am now once again able to focus on my role as Lt. Governor.”
Statement of Mike Easterday, Chief of Staff for Lt. Governor’s Office
“While the report refers to ‘undetermined reasons’, there is a strong suggestion that the wrong bolts in the engine resulted in the loss of power, after which the inability to abort takeoff led to the crash.  The facts of the report speak for themselves:  circumstances out of the pilot’s control caused a loss of power, and he was unable to abort the takeoff.”
