As authorities continue to investigate a plane crash in Grayson County, we are learning more about the pilot killed in the crash. We now know the man was an ER doctor living in Louisville.
WDRB briefly spoke with one of Dr. Lyle Moss' sons at his home--who was too upset to talk, but an old friend felt moved to talk on behalf of the family. Sheila Schuster handed over the key to her home in the highlands this week to its new owners. "We closed on Tuesday and we said to them, oh you've got great next door neighbors."
Those neighbors were Lyle and Kathy Moss, who she had grown fond of. "They had given up his practice in Houston and they moved here so they could be close to their son," said Schuster.
So close, their son--also a pilot-- actually lives on the street behind them. "They loved it so much they talked their other son and his wife from upstate NY to move," she laughed.
The 61 year old was a dedicated ER doctor who had a hobby on the side--flying. "I think it was that freedom that flying gives you. It was a thrill for him, it took him up and away," Schuster said.
Before moving two years ago, he and his wife had been through a rough patch in Texas. "He and his wife had lost all of their belongings actually in Hurricane Ike, and so he had kind of resurrected a plane to work on it," said Schuster.
It was his plane he talked about during their last conversation. "And right before we moved he said 'I'm so excited I'm going to have my plane back.'"
Moss died when his plane crashed Friday afternoon into the Pine Tree Inn, near the Rough River Dam State Resort Park. The motel owner was the only one inside and made it out okay. But, Schuster says, a man who saved lives in the emergency room and touched many hearts with a kind smile, will be truly missed.
Some witnesses told WDRB it sounded like the engine went out--and went silent just before the plane went down.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the cause of the crash.
