Sad news for the 3 Tesla employees on board. RIP.

The plane that crashed was a Cessna 310 twin that holds up to 6 passengers.
It crashed in heavy fog in a neighborhood near the Palo Alto airport it was taking off from.

They apparently were flying down to Hawthorne airport in southern California. Tesla has a design studio there.

A little more info in this news article about the crash:
http://www.wired.com/autopia/2010/02...sla-employees/

The tail number of the plane involved was N5225J.
In doing a google search, I found a picture of the plane that crashed.

Palo Alto

ya' very sad. Happened near our area, but what is truly sad is Tesla will suffer. NOT toast. The stim. money they got is too large to spell 'give it up/fail'. Not to mention the deep pockets of the owner.

However, sorry to hear of the dead.

Very tragic loss right in my back-yard. Was at their facility in 2007 and their new dealer a few times, great group that always had a car at Palo Alto's Concours as well. Very sad. I wish their families the best.

Tesla : 2008

Remember them at the last Ferrari Challenge event, they were in the coral, albeit, couple cars back in the 'other' section with the Lambos etc.

You simply take that code after the v= and put it inside a YouTube tag with [ ]...

[ youtube ] YWF2NzW3S40 [ / youtube ]

Just remove all those spaces in the [ ]. We'll take care of the rest. There is also a YouTube icon in the full posting feature:
