At 17:16 eastern time, a Beech B200 crashed 7.9 miles south of Rangeley Municipal Airport. The pilot and passenger were killed. The flight was en route from Portland and was cleared for the GPS A approach. At nine miles the pilot reported the airport in sight and canceled his IFR clearance. The pilot then radioed his wife, who was waiting at the airport, and told her he was on a base for Runway 32. Bad weather hindered the search, and the airplane was located the next morning on the southwest side of a 3,125-foot mountain, about 100 feet from the top.
