    You watched a video wherein some people fishing observed a guy recklessly showboating an airplane and crashing it into the ocean, and the first person you identify as "dumbass clowns" isn't the dude who killed himself and left a family behind?

    They were quite a ways from where it went down and there was zero chance he was alive at that point. Diving into open ocean into live-wreckage where someone is clearly dead sounds like the smart move to me.
    you're smarter than this gravey ;)

    I'll take this under submission and render my decision according to the court calendar.

    Given the video, I'm gonna guess that he just botched a landing. No distress calls were made, and the plane looked to be gliding over the water ready to touch down. Wonder if he just dipped the nose, or something.


    Fun fact: The lead test pilot also crashed and died, flying this plane.

    Christ, when your test pilot can't even control it, perhaps hold off on letting the B-level licensed pilots give it a shot.

    The video doesn't show the crash. It shows him doing stunts. Then it cuts to them racing to the crash.
    they were filming in the first place because they saw some dude flying idiotically in his plane and whipped their phones out, not coincidental timing.

    Oh', so there was more time between that shot of him gliding near the water, and the actual crash? The video looks like he was just about to touch down.
