    The three men were Tom Risk of Littleton Colorado. He was my copilot in an airtanker in 1988 and had been flying firefighting aircraft since before then.
    Mike Flynn 59, copilot started aerial firefighting about 2002 or 03. I had him as a copilot last fall in the November south Cal fires.
    A mechanic Brian Buss 32?, was traveling with them to the base in Alamogordo, NM.
    The airplane belonged to Neptune Aviation Services Inc of Missoula Mt. Neptune has been exclusively in the business of wildland firefighting since 1993, and the company before that was Black Hills Aviation, started in 1962.
    The crash is under investigation by the NTSB at this time.
