Report: Pilot in fatal NC Harrier crash unprepared

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — Investigators say a North Carolina-based Marine Corps pilot killed in a crash last year lacked training for his mission to a college football game and his supervising officer deserves some blame.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported Thursday that the investigation led to the commanding officer of a Marine aviation training squadron at the Cherry Point Air Station being relieved of his duties.

Capt. Alberto Bencosme died when his Harrier jet crashed Dec. 29, 2008. Bencosme had a support role for a flyover at the Outback Bowl, requiring him to fly solo to McDill Air Force Base near Tampa, Fla.

The report said Bencosme had not piloted a Harrier solo for about two months before the crash and his preparation had other shortcomings.

Bill-signing deadline approaching for NC governor

RALEIGH — Gov. Beverly Perdue is running out of time to decide on bills left on her desk by the North Carolina General Assembly before it left town last month.

The state constitution gives Perdue until midnight Thursday to sign or veto legislation. Those not considered within the 30-day window automatically become law.

Perdue has left to consider five of the 108 bills given to her by the Legislature. One bill would make clear that requests made by General Assembly employees to state agencies are exempt from the public records law.

North Carolina was the last state in the country to give veto power to its governor, acting in 1997. A governor has issued vetoes nine times. The Legislature overrode one of those vetoes.
