The accident happened at Lake Berryessa, a small lake in Napa County near the headquarters of Icon Aircraft, the manufacturers of the A5. The A5 was an amphibious small aircraft that had only one previous crash in its history, until Monday.

55 year old John Karkow was tragically killed in the crash, as was Cagri Sever, 41. John Karkow was the lead test pilot and a lead engineer on the A5, an experimental aircraft that had rave reviews from every test flight. About 20 A5s have been built and have logged over 3,500 flight hours collectively. The investigation into the fatal crash is ongoing at this time.
