Suva boy dies in plane crash
A Suva resident, Frederick Mitchell Jr, died after the plane that he was piloting crashed into the hills outside Lautoka yesterday. A picture of Frederick and the crash scene taken from the Fiji Times today is shown above.
Frederick was 21 and had just graduated with his pilot's licence in December 2005. He was a well known face on Fiji TV after being captured on some of their advertisements as a model when he was still at high school. Frederick attended Dudley High School and did his pilot training at one of the aviation schools in Nadi.
To the Mitchell family, we extend our condolences at the loss of a young life and wish God's peace be with you all at this time.
