Former MLB pitcher died in Vacaville-made airplane

Former MLB pitcher Roy Halladay died Tuesday in a plane crash in the A5, which was found upside down in shallow water off Florida's Gulf Coast. "It's really a play thing".

The National Transportation Safety Board began its investigation of the crash Wednesday morning by collecting pieces of the ICON A5 that broke away during the crash.

The NTSB said it could take several weeks for investigators to determine what went wrong in Halladay's crash. Stuck among mangroves in about 6 feet of water, the plane likely cant be moved until todays high tide at 4 p.m.

"They still think that that's the way the airplane should be flown, and there are people in aviation who completely disagree with that", Pope said.

Last October, Halladay became the first person to take possession of the 2018 model of the ICON A5 Founders Edition plane, according to an article on the companys website. "They think you should not have a low-time pilot flying low over water". Cagri Sever, a new employee who was in the passenger's seat, also was killed.

The NTSB blamed pilot error for the crash, saying Karkow mistakenly entered a canyon while flying too low, causing the plane to strike the canyon wall. The pilot told investigators the plane descended faster than he expected.

Halladay was an eight-time All-Star during his 16-year career with the Blue Jays and Phillies.

Halladay, 40, earned his pilot's license after retiring from Major League Baseball.

Halladay won the Cy Young award twice and pitched a no-hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2010.
