Two killed in chopper crash
By April KEMICK, Free Press Reporter and News Services, Thurs., May 4, 2006
Two London region men are dead after the helicopter they were flying back to Blenheim, in Chatham-Kent, crashed in an open field in California, a friend said yesterday.
Frank VERELLEN, 64, a long-time pilot from Ridgetown, and his brother-in-law, Leo STRAATMAN of Watford, died in the crash Monday, VERELLEN's friend and co-worker at Zimmer Air Services said last night from Thunder Bay.
The pair were flying a new Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter from Torrance, California., back to Zimmer Air Services' main base in Blenheim when the crash occurred, said Michael KLEYWEGT.
"Frank was one of the best of the best in this industry, as far as his abilities as a pilot and the mentoring he provided to everyone," said KLEYWEGT, adding VERELLEN had worked at Zimmer Air Services for 28 years.
"Everybody loved Frank."
Zimmer has operations in Blenheim and Thunder Bay.
VERELLEN, a father of five, who had bought a property in Ridgetown in anticipation of retirement, spent most of his career as a pilot doing agricultural spraying and shading, KLEYWEGT said.
The seasoned pilot, who logged more than 7,500 hours in helicopters, trained many of Zimmer's up-and-comers and acted as a friendly mentor, he said.
"(Frank) was just a phenomenal guy," said an emotional KLEYWEGT.
"He's very well missed by all the Friends and family he left behind."
The helicopter took off at noon Monday from Torrance and went down at 2: 38 p.m. off Interstate 10 near Blythe, 320 kilometres east of Los Angeles, said Lauren PEDUZZI, a spokesperson for the National Transportation Safety Board.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators moved the aircraft to a Palmdale facility for further inspection.
The family has been told it may be some time before the bodies arrive in Ontario, said Frieda VERELLEN, the pilot's wife.

Although Ian excelled in many sports, his lifetime passion was track and field. Erom his first award at the age of 14 to his setting of world records in numerous events at the Masters level up until the age of 85, he never lost the thrill of competition. Some of the highlights of his endeavours were being named to the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame as a builder and as an athlete, being awarded the Order of Canada, receiving an Honorary Doctorate of Civil Law from Bishop's University and being chosen as the recipient of the prestigious Dollard Morin Prize for Volunteerism. Ian was an exceptional man, gentle and thoughtful of others, with a humbleness and quiet dignity. Those who knew him had the utmost respect for his honesty, straightforwardness and strong work ethic. Those who knew him well, will never forget that twinkle in his eye that often preceded his quick and clever wit. His legacy will live on in all those whose lives he has touched. The family wishes to express grateful thanks to the centre local de services communautaires' staff, caregivers and others for their support and dedicated care the last few years. Resting at Collins, Clarke, MacGillivray, White Funeral Home, 307 Riverside Drive, St. Lambert, 514-483-1870. Visitation: Thursday, March 30, 7-9 p.m. and Friday, March 31, 10-11 a.m.; funeral to follow in the chapel. Burial at 3 p.m. Hillhouse Cemetery, Brill Road, West Bolton. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ian HUME's honour to Bishop's University Athletic Association or University of Sherbrooke's Athletic Association would be greatly appreciated.
