It was an RV-8. Potentially weather related according to the preliminary
report on the FAA site.

Gig

POB (Persons on board) is sometimes used instead of SOB.

SOB has been used for as long as I can remember (at least in the
Military).

The abbreviation was used to expedite the passing of info for crash
crew purposes.

Without the acronym you would have to say "Two pilots, 3 stews, 25
men, 20 women and 4 children" all with hands full while working the
emergency.

The total "SOB" lets the crash crew know when they have recovered all
the people/bodies from a crash and not continue to put crash crew at
risk if all are recovered.

The 'souls on board' does not bother me as I go to Church with the
wife and am comfortable with the use of the word "souls".

I know exactly what it means. I would say the same thing though if there
were a legit FAA/Military term of say, "Formerly Useful Christian Kickers"
and they used the acronym.

Also John,

You do realize my problem with the acronym has nothing to do with the use of
the term Soul.

As a mater of fact the term Souls on Board is there to differentiate between
bodies that were alive at the time the flight started and any that weren't.

Again I have no problem with the term, just the acronym.

I must be dense All this time I thought the objection to S.O.B. was because
it also stood for
sons of bitches.

It doesn't?
And here when you think of an accident and those poor "Souls On
Board". I've been doing it wrong all these years.
