Thanks Whirly, it seems like a real possibility then...

If you don't gear up your brain before takeoff, you'll probably gear up your airplane on landing.

There is no reason to speculate or ask any further questions. As you can see from the image, the authority on global aviation has already spoken and laid blame at the pilots door for the accident :roll:
I struggle to understand how someone can be so careless to make statement without an investigation and reports and within a few hours. Credibility means very little in todays clickbait style media environment.

"Stalled and spun while dispensing meat bombs"

:shock: :lol:

Must have required some underpant replacements after that one? Anyone know more?

I always thought a T tail would be better for a skydiving aerie.

I'm sure it is, you'll have a very hard time exiting the aircraft in such a way as to snag the tail surfaces. Unless the plane is upside down, of course...

We did a few parachute jumps with a T tail Piper Lance for a test.
It has barn doors to take off ( approved ) it take the same amount of jumpers
as a C206 and it climbed the same time as the C206 from sea level to
10 thousand feet.
However being turbo charged the descend to landing from parachute drop took longer
to keep the engine numbers in the green. We needed to keep some power on to keep
the temperatures in the green and can not be pulled back to idle and dived down to landing.
So it took longer for up and down as the C206 they used at Swakopmund.
Easy to trim and handle . We put a temporary hardboard floor in to make the exit at the
back door flat as the cessna.
Skydivers loved it as the interior space is bigger than the Cessna with big exit

Hi Johan
Turbocharged or not all the piston-engine skydive planes I have flown needed to descend with power to stop shock cooling! Turbines can of course dive straight down :D
