Default Re: Tesla Motors Execs Plane Crash

Grrrr.... this is what makes me mad!!!

It seems to be a contunual cycle of control and suppresion thats never ending!!!

As soon as we get closer to something like this... BANG!!!

There are times when I think 'let her rip' ...!

Tesla Motors employees were traveling on board the plane that crashed in Palo Alto Wednesday, including a high-ranking official, according to KTVU.

Tesla Motors spokesperson Khobi Brooklyn told the Los Angeles Times that she can not confirm any details at this time and the company will release a statement once it has received additional information.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the plane's owner was Doug Bourn, a senior electrical engineer for Tesla. Prior to the crash, the plane was headed for Hawthorne Municipal Airport, the Chronicle reports.

All three people who died in the wreck are believed to have been Tesla executives, according to Jalopnik.

Meanwhile, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was named the 2010 Automotive Executive of the Year Innovator Award. It's unclear if he was passenger on the plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration has not identified the three victims involved in the crash, according to the Associated Press.
