Re: “The Plane That Wasn't There

Happy Holidays to All! Thank you to all for taking the time to comment on this article. This is my first Christmas without Dad. I am sure I don't need to say anything else. Please I plan to write letters to EVERYONE until SOMEONE listens. There will be change in 2010, to "RNL" you put it nicely to Humboldt County, whom would want to fly into such an unsafe airport? Anyone, with information that may be of assistance in my crusade, please do email me personally, to "" if everyone speaks, someone will have no choice but to listen. Again, thank you all and have a safe and happy holiday season. Regards, Sheila Jenkins Rick Gustafsons Daughter

Re: “The Plane That Wasn't There

Thank you to all who continue to comment and show their support. Being that I live in South FLorida it makes it that much more difficult. But, as I said, I am NOT going to let this go. Yes, I am due to give birth to a baby anyday, but I will be back. I appreciate all the information provided. Being that I flew into Arcata Airport when meeting with the Coast Guard, and seeing the size of Arcata Airport, one has to wonder how you could miss a plane being there? You could look out a window and see the entire landing area. Like Charles said if it was a United Flight with 30 people would Ms. Hulsey reacted differently? Ms. Hulsey, needs to realize the importance of ONE life is equal to that of 30! I will do my best, to ensure this does not happen to anyone else due to her negligence.
Regards, Sheila Jenkins

Re: “The Plane That Wasn't There

My Dad, Rick Gustafson's death will not be in vain.
Ms. Hulsey, Airport Manager, of not just this airport but other airports as well in the area, may not be willing to face any of us or speak to any of us.
But, I know she is reading this, and I assure YOU, Ms. Hulsey, that YOU will be held accountable for your inexcusable negligence.
CHANGE will happen, so that no family will have to go through such a horrible experience, because you chose to go to bed and handle such a serious issue in the morning. It may take me a while, to CHANGE the county, the govt., the FAA, etc., but I will go through all channels, to assure to prove that YOU, Ms. Hulsey are NOT qualified for the position you hold.
I will make sure CHANGE happens, to prevent Seattle from practically watching the plane drop into the water, and not be able to call out the Coast Guard themselves.
Yes, this was a very unofrtunate accident, and they may have died upon impact. Ms. Hulsey, that was not for you to decide, you don't get to play God with peoples lives. As the Coast Guard said it happenned in their backyard they could have been there in minutes, to be sure, my Dad was not still alive, had YOU Ms. Hulsey not gone to bed that night after receiving such serious information. I am NOT a vindictive person, however, you do NOT take your position serious enough for the title you hold. Your actions after the crash and to date prove this, over and over.
I understand "discipline actions" were taken, but, if you are still holding that position than they were not satisfactory actions to me.
Ms. Hulsey, and Humboldt County, you will hear my name, Sheila Jenkins, over and over in the future. Mark my words.
Anyone with additional information please feel free to contact me directly: TLCOFFLORIDA@AOL.COM and I thank you in aadvance. Regards, Sheila Jenkins Daughter of Rick Gustafson

Re: “Until Memorial Day

Please feel free to contact me directly at TLCOFFLORIDA@AOL.COM with ANY information in helping me to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again. I lost my Dad in this plane crash and agree there was a LOT of "mistakes" on the evening of March 1st. Although change will NOT bring my Dad back to me. I do NOT want ANY family to have to EVER go through what mine is now.
