When I saw the headline on my phone just before I went to bed last night I assumed he must have crashed shortly after takeoff. I guess we don't yet know how much previous flying experience this guy had, if any, but I was a little surprised to hear this morning that he flew around for over an hour before crashing. As a mechanic he presumably knew enough to know how to start the plane, and maybe taxi it (IIRC some mechanics are allowed to taxi the planes, but it requires some additional certification).
