Two Onboard Perished
The small plane carrying two elderly flyers was discovered
Friday by hikers near Kremmling, Colorado, not far from where it
had departed after refueling. The plane, and the remains of
Claiborne Courtright, 81, and William Duffy, 77, were found in Gore
Canyon, about four miles southwest of Kremmling.
The men, both from Pueblo, had taken off form Fremont County
Airport in Canon City, and had refueled in Kremmling April 7th
before going missing. The 1954 red and tan colored tri-pacer was
found on a ridgeline by hikers with the Denver Salt Lake Railway
Grand County Sheriff Rod Johnson hiked up to the wreckage and
said the fuselage was intact and hanging upside down in trees with
parts of the plane scattered about. One wing was broken completely
"It looked like they were about 10 feet of making the point (in
the ridgeline), but it looks like they hit some trees or something
and that flipped it into the ground," Johnson said.
Skeletal human remains were also found at the scene.
Johnson said he couldn't immediately determine if the men
survived the impact. The men, who took off from Fremont County
Airport in Canon City, were last heard from after refueling in
Kremmling April 7.
A recovery team and National Transpiration Safety Board
investigators were expected to hike to the site on Saturday.
