Anyone have a list of jumpers who were in the aircraft? I believe an old friend of mine, Bill Burr (Moriarity)was in a crash in Hawaii and believe you may be discussing that crash. I'd love to know the details if anyone could share them.
yep, Moriarity was on the load. Short of the story is the beech fell over on it's back tail first and then spun in nose down and impacted, all but one guy died.
On dec.5th 1981 N8185H crashed as it turned to final for a demo into Aloha Stadium, came to rest 300yds off the bow of the U.S.S. Airzona in 3 1/2 ft. of water. Deceased:
