I confirmed with the NTSB that this was incorrectly reported as a powered HG crash and now is being reported and processed as an aircraft crash. A full report "should" be in the works.

NTSB will probably not investigate. It is my understanding that Mark was flying a 103 legal BB trike. However they might make an exception here because Mark manufactured and sold certified wings.

Hi All, I had a wing on order from Mark Gibson since Spring that I fully payed for ($5200). Since Mark’s tragic passing I have not heard from the holders of his estate and all my attempts to contact them have failed. I wonder if any of you is in the same situation… Before moving forward with lawyers/county sheriff etc. I would like to find a way to work this out in a most considerate way without causing more pain to those who were impacted by this tragedy. Please contact me if you have a suggestion or know how to get in touch with the holders of Mark’s estate. Thank you, Imre 408-364-5851 imre@kabai.com
