Super Cub Down Ahead Of Hood River Fly-In

Two Fatally Injured In The Accident

A Piper PA-18 Super Cub suffered an apparent engine failure on takeoff from the Hood River (4S2) airport in Oregon Friday and went down on the airport grounds, resulting in the fatal injury of the two people on board.

The Seattle Times reports that, according to Hood River County sheriff’s Deputy Joel Ives, the two men on board have been identified as Ben Davidson, chief pilot for The Western Antique Airplane & Automobile Museum, and Matthew Titus of Turlock, California, who was piloting the airplane. The two men were reportedly related in some way, according to authorities.

The accident occurred just before the start of an annual fly-in hosted by the museum. A witness told authorities that the plane had reached an altitude of about 100 feet before the engine "cut out". The pilot attempted to restart the engine, but was unsuccessful.

The event went on as scheduled, according to the WAAAM Facebook page.
