It's weird how Iowa has two bad winter small plane crashes...Buddy Holly and this crash which was in Runner's World. I do not remember it at all. The coach Ron Renko had coached up at a Minnesota college in 70's. The pilot and 6 team members...3 girls and both coaches and the team student trainer. Okie State has had two terrible crashes...one just like this where in winter in multiple planes one plane did not make it home...basketball and one where ladies basketball coaches on recruiting trip crashed.
Life can be 'sudden'.
It was 33 years ago and yet it tore me up to read about it today.
