When 15-year old Charles Bishop commandeered a small plane on Jan.5, his family’s ghosts may
have been seated beside him. In 1984, before he was born, his parents attempted twice to commit
suicide together––once trying to stab each other––because they were denied a marriage license (his
mother was then only 17). In 1986 they had Charles and got married, but divorced soon after his father
became an abusive husband. Charles and his mother moved around the country, and during the Gulf
War she changed their name to Bishop to rid them of his father’s Arabic surname, Bishara. But by the
time Charles entered high school last year in Tarpon Springs, Fla., near Tampa, he seemed a bright,
contented teen, far removed from the turmoil he had been born into.
He apparently wasn’t. Bishop flew the single-engine Cessna into a Tampa office building, killing
10 only himself and leaving behind a suicide note declaring support for Osama bin Laden. Bishop had 11 flown menacingly over Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base-from which the Afghan war is being 12 directed– prompting new fears about security at a time when more small, lightly regulated aircrafts are 13 filling the skies. Bishop’s close friend Emerson Favreau told TIME that days before the crash Bishop 14 asked him to locate the command center inside MacDill. Investigators think he originally targeted the 15 base. 16 What’s alarming about Bishop’s rogue flight is how easily it began: his instructor gave him keys 17 to inspect the Cessna, and the unlicensed pilot took off from St. Petersburg/Clearwater International 18 Airport while the teacher wasn’t looking. Robert Cooper, who owns the National Aviation Flight 19 School, where Bishop took lessons, defends the school’s role, saying, “This is not an issue of security. 20 It’s an issue of trust.” 21 But what set Bishop off? The boy’s mother Julia Bishop insisted through her lawyer that Charles 22 knew nothing of her complicated past or that of his father Charles Bishara, whom officials could not 23 locate but who is believed to be living in Massachusetts. Bishara’s father Robert Bishara of Everett, 24 Mass., says he hasn’t seen his son in six years, and that the Tampa tragedy was the first news he had 25 heard of his grandson since the 1980s. “I lost my grandson the same day I found him again,” he says. 26 The complete suicide note, which was to be made public this week after the boy’s funeral could shed 27 more light. At his home, police found a prescription for Accutane, a potent acne drug recently brought 28 to the attention of Congress because it has been anecdotally linked––with no scientific evidence–– to 29 dozens of suicide attempts since 1982. A toxicology report should reveal if the boy was taking the 30 drug. 31 Police at first tried to describe Bishop as a troubled loner. Yet Favreau said Charles “never 32 complained about his home life,” and teachers cast him as a buoyant student who denounced bin 33 Laden in an essay. Favreau notes, however, that Charles dropped out of sight for long periods of time 34 during the last holiday break, telling friends he was working on a “project”. He also hinted they should 35 watch the news for something big, reportedly telling his grandmother the day of the crash not to let his 36 enemies attend his funeral. “I gotta think that project was his suicide,” says Favreau. 37 The general aviation industry, meanwhile, is circling its Cessnas. Even before the Bishop incident, 38 measures were about to be decided in Congress that would demand annual psychological tests for the 39 nation’s 650,000 licensed pilots; the schools are pushing to tighten only terminal security. Whatever 40 emerges, Bishop’s fatal flight may teach aviation schools a new lesson in safety.
