SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Friends and families those killed in the crash are reacting to the news differently.
Pete Sanchez is a fellow pilot who's known the 54-year-old pilot Brian Blake for the past four years. Blake managed the fixed base operator at the Tea Airport where Sanchez stores his airplane.
Sanchez says he enjoyed talking about airplanes and aviation with Blake whenever he was around.
“Oh he's a great guy, it's a sad, sad story you know, I hate to hear about these airplane accidents you know sometimes, I feel like the airplanes or pilots kind of get a bad rep, because when there is an accident it's generally a fatality accident like this in this case," Sanchez said.
