Plane Crash - 1-27-15

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

We had some excitement on the pass Sunday. Mark Darling's Cessna crashed south of Rabbit Ears Pass (the mountain pass just to the east of Steamboat). Amazingly, Mark walked away from this.

In fact, he was able to call 911 and his family, then light spilled fuel to stay warm until our volunteer Search and Rescue group could snowmobile in the 5 miles to get him. Delbert Bostock got photos of the remains of the Cessna.

Although he's still in the hospital for tests I agree with what he told his family - it was a miracle he survived.
