Ahhh! Wished I could come but I can’t…
Sounds like a nice event though :)

The crash was a result of bad piloting. Instead of pushing the nose down to recover from the stall, the captain pushed it up which made it do a barrel roll and crash. It was not operated by United Express, but rather by a smaller company (Colgan). The United colors were on the aircraft but It it had a colgon flight crew. This is the reason why on every airline ticket that is for a flight not operated by that airline, it has “Operated by [Insert partner airline].” United usually partners with Mesa Airlines for UA Express nowadays.
I didn’t post on here for a history lesson 😂 ill take a gate pls.

Not true. UA Express operators include Air Wisconsin, Cape Air, CommutAir, ExpressJet, GoJet, Mesa, Republic, SkyWest, and TransStates.

Mesa just hold a small portion of UA Express routes, only operating out of IAH and IAD for them.
