The pilot of a light aircraft from CHO was found in the wreckage of the plane in Greene last night. Kenneth Clarry, of Albemarle, was killed on Sunday when his plane hit the side of a mountain near Saddleback Mountain in the Shenandoah National Park, north of Rt. 33. The plane was located, and his body recovered, by a search crew last night. Clarry had been on a three-hour solo practice flight. The FAA is investigating the cause of the accident.

I remember when he opened up the New Deli on 29n. He was a nice hard working guy. Last couple of years he was involved with a internet company that dealt with real estate, I think. My condolences to his family.
Was he a beginner pilot?
The Daily Progress’s coverage was, I think, very poor. They mentioned the accident in Wednesday and Thursday’s papers, but rathering than featuring Ken Clarry’s photo, they showed a GIGANTIC photo of a smiling Leah Yeager, the NTSB air safety investigator. Do we care what the investigator looks like? No. Do we want to know more about the deceased and his background? Yes.
Fortunately, I had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Clarry. He was a good man, full of integrity and entrepreneurial spirit. I feel sad for his family.
Does this really suprise you about the Daily Progress? Hey Waldo, why don’t you start a daily newpaper too!
The FAA doesnt investigate plane crashes. The NTSB does. And I didnt find this crash listed.
This looks like another crash listed for the same day though.
"…80 foot tree at the end of the runway…"
Sombebody needs a chainsaw.
Hey Waldo, why don’t you start a daily newpaper too!
Ha! That would be a trip. Every few days, the newspaper boxes would be empty, with a note taped up: “Sorry, no news today!”
No, it doesn’t surprise me, but I thought I’d put in my $0.02. Who needs a daily newspaper? I say Waldo should hire reporters and make the DP obsolete with CvilleNews. What do you say, Waldo? I’d work fer ya.
