Marine Pilot Sought to Get Back Into Jet, Witness Says

The LA Times reported on a Marine pilot destroying the videotape of a flight where he killed 20 skiers in the Italian Alps.

Mark said the tape was important because it would have provided irrefutable evidence about what happened during the flight.  Mark considered his work a criminal investigation from the day it began, on Feb. 4, 1998, even thought a formal order for a criminal investigation wasn’t issued until March 14. The dates were important to prosecutors and defense lawyers because the prosecution contends Ashby should have known an inquiry was underway when he helped get rid of the tape a few days later.
