(WFLA) – Roy Halladay had a love for flying, but it’s a love that his wife eerily feared.

News Channel 8 learned more about the plane he was flying when he crashed off the coast of Pasco County, the Icon A5.

Jim Campbell says the aircraft’s company promise was to deliver a cost effective, sport aircraft with amphibious capabilities.
