General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


Emergency crews at Aspen-Pitkin County Airport responded to the plane following the crash, which occurred shortly after noon local time. According to the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Department, one person was killed and two were injured — one severely — in the crash. The victims were not immediately identified.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the plane, a Bombardier Challenger 600, was en route to Aspen from Tucson. According to public flight data, a 22-seat private Challenger model plane — owned by a Bank of Utah trustee — took off from Tucson International Airport shortly after 10 a.m. and was due to land in Aspen at 12:11 p.m. MST. Earlier Sunday, the same plane flew from Toluca, Mexico, to Tucson before flying to Aspen.

There were reports of 30 mph wind gusts in Aspen around the time of the crash, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures were between zero and minus-10 degrees. Video taken just after the crash near the tarmac appeared to show strong winds and deteorating weather conditions.
