A Panama City company garnered national headlines last week after crashing two helicopters in the same lake on the same day.
Greg Clubbs, president of Coastal Helicopters, said the pilots were spraying herbicides over Lake Apopka and became disoriented by the lake’s stillness.
Still lakes, Clubbs explained, appear as a “mirror-like” surface from the air and impact the depth perception of the pilots. The crashes are the first in company history.
