Twin-Engine Aircraft Crashes at Idaho-Montana Border
A twin engine plane (#N888GG) crashed and caught fire at around 5:30 pm on June 17 in the parking lot at Lost Trail Pass, Conner, Montana at the summit of Lost Trail Pass on the border of Idaho and Montana.
The Ravalli County Sheriff office confirmed that the aircraft was destroyed to the extent that it was not possible to recognize that it was a Grumman G-21A. Witnesses say the plane spun down, dropped hard and flat, and on impact was immediately engulfed in flames. Nothing recognizable remained but the wing tips.
Only the pilot was aboard.
Ravalli County Sheriff and Federal Aviation Administration investigator Allen Kenitzer are looking into the details and causes of accident.
