Video shows Roy Halladay's flight pattern moments before plane crash


TMZ obtained footage from boaters who witnessed the stunts and subsequent crash, which repeatedly shows the plane going from 100 feet in the air down to just five feet and back up again.

She said Halladay had been a licensed pilot since 2013 and logged about 700 hours of flight time before Tuesday's crash near Tampa. Stuck among mangroves in about 6 feet of water, the plane likely cant be moved until todays high tide at 4 p.m.

"Ive owned other aircraft, but no aircraft embodies the adventure or captured the dream of flying like the A5", Halladay said in the article.

"They still think that that's the way the airplane should be flown, and there are people in aviation who completely disagree with that", Pope said.

Low flying was part of the problem when Karkow, the designer, crashed, according to federal investigators.

They recovered Halladay's body from the two-passenger plane, police said. Karkow was killed along with passenger Cagri Sever, the company's newly hired director of engineering.

The National Transportation Safety Board concluded that the probable cause of that accident was pilot error. We have gotten to know Roy and his family in recent months, and he was a great advocate and friend of ours.

Halladay was an eight-time All-Star during his 16-year career with the Blue Jays and Phillies. He retired with 203 wins and a 3.38 ERA.

Halladay won the Cy Young award twice and pitched a no-hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2010. Halladay, 40, was the only person on the two-seater plane.
