Brandy later went with her husband to the training center in St. Petersburg, Florida to see the plane, an ICON A5.

She said Halladay had been a licensed pilot since 2013 and logged about 700 hours of flight time before Tuesday's crash near Tampa.

Halladay is quoted in the release saying "not only is it the safest and easiest aircraft I've ever flown, it is hands-down the most fun".

"We were devastated to learn that former Major League Baseball pitcher Roy Halladay died today in an accident involving an ICON A5 in the Gulf of Mexico", ICON said in a statement, viaESPN.

"I keep telling my dad flying the Icon A5 low over the water is like flying a fighter jet!" "They think you should not have a low-time pilot flying low over water".

Rail chaos: Southern drivers end 18-month strike
Rail staff are walking out as part of a long-standing dispute over driver-only trains, affecting Northern services in the borough. Drivers working for Southern Railway have voted to accept a deal to end the dispute over driver-only trains.

Low flying was part of the problem when Karkow, the designer, crashed, according to federal investigators. Cagri Sever, a new employee who was in the passenger's seat, also was killed. Witnesses raced their boats over to the site of the crash in attempt to help, but it was reportedly clear the pilot was already dead by the time they arrived.

Another A5 crashed in April, making a hard landing in the water off Key Largo, Florida, injuring the pilot and his passenger.

The sheriff's office marine unit responded and discovered Halladay's body in shallow water near some mangroves.

Almost every memory began with a story about Halladay's legendary work ethic, his workout program and his early morning routine. Halladay, 40, was the only person on the two-seater plane. He retired with 203 wins and a 3.38 ERA.
