A Cessna 182 went down near Stanley, Idaho, on Monday, September 12, killing both the pilot and passenger, who are reportedly from the Nampa/Caldwell area.
KIVI-TV reports that the men’s bodies were found among the wreckage around 4:40 p.m. the following day by authorities from the Custer County Sheriff’s Department, the Idaho National Guard, the Civil Air Patrol, and the U.S. Forest Service.
On Monday night residents nearly Stanley had contacted law enforcement officials to report hearing what they thought might be the plane’s engine stalling. The crash occurred near to a trailhead, and authorities believe the men were killed on impact.
The plane had gone missing from radar shortly after takeoff Monday at 10 p.m. from Salmon, Idaho. The flight plan had been to travel the 175 miles to Caldwell.
The crash is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.
This was one of two Idaho aviation accidents this week. A married couple from Caldwell also perished in a plane crash.
