Do you believe it?

I wonder if he’s faking his death.

BEIJING — A U.S. stunt pilot was missing and his Chinese translator dead after their aircraft crashed into a lake in China’s northeast on Tuesday, state media reported.

The accident involving David Riggs took place about 1 p.m. on Tuesday outside Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning province, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

Xinhua said Riggs had been flying a high-performance Lancair plane that had been assembled at a local airport. It said rescuers were still searching for Riggs while an investigation into the crash was under way.

Riggs’ website listed him as a Hollywood stunt pilot, movie producer and holder of several world aviation speed records. It said he became the first American to fly from a Chinese military base since World War II during the 2010 China International Air Races.

Calls to the Studio City, California, offices of Riggs’ Mach One Aviation Inc. were answered by a message saying it was unable to connect to voice mail.

    Well, Darwin finally did what the government should have done years ago, permanent revocation. So sorry he killed another innocent person. There’s not enough hell for Riggs to spend eternity in.

      You nailed the problem. These guys continue to get away with their activities and put innocent people at risk. These guys= there are more than Riggs out there – FAA ignores facts presented to them and they allow them to continue to operate.
