Letter: The forgotten heroes

The forgotten heroes

This week our airport experienced an accident that the flying public fear. Fortunately it very seldom happens, but when it does, it is often tragic and always spectacular.

As I read all the accounts, the one thing I find missing is the incredible response from the Aspen airport crash team. These guys were on the scene with fire suppression almost before the craft came to a stop. Their quick, professional response saved the survivors from a horrible fiery death. As a private pilot and a frequent flier, I hope I never experience this tragic situation, but it is comforting to know that we have a well train, professional team to help mitigate the situation if it should arise.

Hats off to these guys!
