    Just need clarification on the owner of the plane. You said it was Brown Flying School and the FAA site you have a link for said the same. WTWO has on their website that the plane was owned by Dr. Patrick O’Neill, a pathologist at Regional Hospital and one of the people in the plane. So which is it?

    Thanks, I corrected the article. The difference was 1 number (171SK vs 17SK), the same model and year of aircraft – different owners.
