Default Too close for comfort.

This helicopter passed right over my house on its way into the lake, low enough to shake the house. I didn't hear or see the actual crash, though.

Clayton helicopter wreckage removed from the Tennessee River.


Joe Clayton identified as helicopter crash victim

I am loosely acquainted with Jim Clayton. The family has done a tremendous amount of good in the Knoxville area.

That is very sad.

I have witnessed a plane crash before where it killed the only occupant. One of a few things nobody want to experience.
