On November 6, a Lake Havasu City husband and wife and their 20-year-old son were killed in a airplane accident, according to the Havasu News.
They were flying home in a Cessna 182 from a football game and were expected to arrive home by 8 p.m. that night. When the man did not arrive for his 7 a.m. work shift on November 9, a search began.
Officials located the plane wreckage early Wednesday evening in the mountains surrounding Alamo Lake, but due to rugged terrain and nightfall, they couldn’t recover the bodies until Thursday.
A member of the London Bridge Civil Air Patrol squadron first spotted the wreckage during Wednesday’s search.
“Once we found it, we just mainly communicated that we thought we had the target we were looking for,” he said. "The terrain was really not conducive to [landing]."
A National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator said the wreckage of the Cessna 182 was airlifted out in sections by helicopter onto a truck then driven to Phoenix.
Officials have begun the investigation to try and determine what killed the Lake Havasu City family of three.
The preliminary report is expected to be posted on the NTSB website in about 10 days, he stated. The board is charged with investigating all civil aviation accidents.
