In 2011, Eva Murray was aboard the Cessna 206 that went down in Penobscot Bay. Following the crash, Eva and all aboard were rescued by local fishermen.
While many may have sworn off flying following such an incident, Eva recognized that choosing not to fly was not an option as a year round island resident. “I never once actually hesitated to get on an airplane, but at that point, I was still feeling some stress. I’d brace myself, I’d jump just a little when the sounds changed, and it wasn’t doing my stomach much good. What I really wanted was for flying ‘to go back to being fun again.” Not only has she gotten back in the air, in 2016, she earned her private pilot’s license.
