Another Plane Crash Kills 4 in the Bahamas

This Cirrus SR22 flown by Tony Wishart of Indianapolis, Indiana crashed yesterday a few miles from the tower of Grand Bahama Island.  The ironic part is this plane is equipped with the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS), an emergency parachute capable of lowering the entire aircraft (and occupants) to the ground in an emergency.  There was no time to deploy as the pilot reported engine trouble shortly after take-off.
