Cessna Caravan crash in Snohomish WashingtonAppears to be a Parachute transport. So far 2 confirmed fatalities, could be more. Await FAA/NTSB findings on the why. My heart goes out to the families of all involved. (www.q13fox.com) More...

Blancolerio reports that it was a test flight for aerodynamic improvements to cargopod. https://raisbeck.com/raisbeck_product/epic-caravan/
Watch Juan Brown on occasion, will have to pull it up, thanks
News just updated may not be a para transport.
You mean it was not carring a load of parachutes? WOW Stupid statment those are called skydiving aircraft and skydivers are in those.
For those of us that are not into that, I wasn't sure what its called. So thanks for the update, but it could of been in a better tone.
Wow used to work for Raisbeck when he took over Robertson STOL after Jim died. Called him a few years back. We lost one Cessna and one Piper on test flights neither were fatal pilots bailed out of both. Its part of test flying an airplane. The hope is whatever failed can be fixed sad that someone died doing it. May they rest in peace.
From the video one wing and other items came off well before it hit the ground. Possibly the cargo pod also. Sad day for the company and people involved with the program.
