Fifteen minutes before the start of a contract writing class I was teaching, news came in of the mid-air collision of the helicopters from KTVK-3 and KNXV-15 here in Phoenix. All four men aboard the two helicopters were lost.
Amazingly, no one on the ground was injured when the helicopters fell into Steele Indian School Park in downtown Phoenix.
Class went on as scheduled but, needless to say, real estate takes a back seat tonight. Coverage has been nearly non-stop on all of the local networks and on the radio.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the gentlemen lost as well as their extended families at each news station.
Back tomorrow …
