A 28-year-old Bellingham man and his passenger were safe Sunday after crash-landing a 1953 Piper PA-18 on the south side of Mount Baker in Washington State, nearly 8,000 feet high.
According to The Bellingham Herald, both the pilot and passenger were rescued from the snow-covered volcano by snowmobilers who saw the wreck, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office.
Neither pilot or passenger were injured.
The incident began as an aircraft reported missing Saturday night by family members, who said the pilot had not returned from his trip to take photos of Mount Baker.
About the same time, the Transportation Department's Aviation Division was alerted to an emergency beacon from a downed aircraft.
A crew from the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station scrambled to search for the lost plane.
Meanwhile, law-enforcement officials in Whatcom County received reports about 7:20 p.m. Saturday of a plane crash or forced landing at Schreibers Meadow, south of Mount Baker.
When officials reached the plane, it was empty. They later learned that snowmobilers had transported the pilot and passenger off the mountain.
A spokesman for the FAA’s Northwest Mountain Region said that the plane made what was described as an emergency landing, “There was substantial damage to the aircraft.”
