Four Fatally Injured In Montana Accident

Cessna 182 Went Down Saturday In Yellowstone County

A Cessna 182 went down Saturday in Yellowstone County, MT, resulting in the fatal injury of all four people on board.

The Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that on Saturday evening, there was a report of an overdue aircraft in the Billings area. Through the night, Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office personnel worked with federal agencies to determine the aircraft’s last position. A radar track determined the aircraft’s last known position was north of Billings near Dunn Mountain.

Sheriff Mike Linder flew to the area Sunday morning in a helicopter piloted by Al Blain of Billings Flying Service.
Linder and Blain were able to locate the downed aircraft near the bottom of the slope on the west face of Dunn Mountain, which can be seen from Hwy 87 N. They landed and were able to determine there were no survivors.
A preliminary visual inspection of the crash scene shows evidence that the plane likely clipped a guy wire of a radio tower at the top of Dunn Mountain.

Four bodies were recovered by about 4:30 Sunday afternoon and were taken to the State Morgue in Billings.

The occupants of the aircraft have been identified as:

  • David Healow, age 69, from Billings (Pilot)
  • Rusty Jungels, age 36, from Billings
  • Mikel Peterson, Age 35, from Billings
  • Raymond Rumbold, age 32, from Billings

The Billings Gazette reports that an FAA spokesman said that the plane most likely departed Woltermann Memorial Airport (6S3) in Hardin, MT en route to Billings at about 5:40 p.m. local time. That information was determined through the pilot's last contacts with FAA Flight Services and radar information.
