If you are referring to the ADS KA350 event of late, and the copilot, it's how many of us that retired from flying Challengers, Gulfstreams, swept wing Citations and Lrjets got out of a Baron. I think the guy in the other seat was 71, hired the FO and definitely retired in a KA350.The last line is pseudo sarc., the rest was called payin your dues if non military or an early fence hanger without a rich daddy.

He also said after someone tried to do something risky that ended tragically, "That's natures way of culling the herd", Nuf said.
