January 28, American Fork, Utah / Beech Bonanza


At approximately 08:30 mountain time, a Beech V35B crashed while maneuvering near American Fork. The pilot was killed. A lineman who refueled the airplane said the pilot told him he was going to scud run to Delta, Utah. The lineman said it was snowing heavily and visibility to the south was nil when the airplane took off. Radar data depicted a VFR target proceeding south from West Jordan along I-15 to American Fork, where it made a left turn and proceeded into American Fork Canyon. The target circled three times as it went further into the canyon and then radar contact was lost.
