October 16, Dixie, Idaho / Cessna Skylane


At approximately 21:16 mountain time, the pilot of a Cessna TR182 and his passenger were killed following a loss of control in flight about two miles north of Dixie. The VFR flight had been in the air 3.5 hours, destined for Boise, when the pilot told controllers he had lost his engine. As he executed the forced landing, the airplane crashed into rolling terrain in a sparsely populated area. The landowner had initiated a controlled burn in the area earlier in the day, and there were numerous smoldering areas near the crash site, but there was no post-crash fire.
