His management in a statement said that “As Jon got further out on to the wing it caused the small Cessna to go into a downward spiral that the pilot couldn’t correct. Jon held on to the wing until it was too late, and by the time he let go, he didn’t have time to pull his chute. He died instantly from the impact.
The pilot managed to correct the out-of-control plane and it landed safely just a few minutes later in British Columbia on Saturday, 20th October 2018.
