U. S. Highland Plane Crash
We were saddened to hear of his death Saturday night at 10:00 pm on the north side of Tulsa International Airport. Chase was headed to Jones Riverside Airport on the way back from Michigan. After reporting they were low on fuel the plane was given the clearance to land at Tulsa International. The Cessna 412A was registered and piloted by Bales and also carried Mats Malmberg, President of Highland and Damian Riddoch, CFO of U.S. Highland.
It is not often that I have the privilege to meet somebody such as Chase. The Swedes he normally work with refer to him as "John Wayne" and for good reason. He was a true visionary, seeing and doing things that only a few of us can dream of, let alone ever accomplish. After talking with him for over an hour, we were shown projects that will be world changing. I hope some of these will come to light and Mr. Chase Bales given the credit due.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to the families of Chase Bales, Damian Riddoch and Mats Malmberg.
