:::::shudder::::: People's Express was a great idea poorly executed, I think. I made one flight with them, from Hartford to Buffalo. It's the only flight in which I was sure I would die.

About 200 feet off the runway on takeoff, the cabin lights went out, and the engines started winding down. Seemed like a total failure of the electrical systems. About 5 seconds later, everything came back. The captain said afterwords: "Oh, that happens all the time, get used to it."

Not surprising the stock crashed and burned ;-)
