GRANGEVILLE, Idaho — Two Utah men have died in a small plane crash in north-central Idaho.
The Idaho County Sheriff’s Office said pilot David Ray Fitzgerald, 57, and Randy Scott Butters, 61, died when their two-seat, single-engine experimental craft went down in a remote area near Yellow Pine.
Undersheriff Jim Gorges in a news release Thursday said authorities received a report late Tuesday of a possible airplane crash involving the two men from Salt Lake City.
A search Wednesday located the crash site. The bodies were recovered and taken to a funeral home in Grangeville.
Gorges said the men often went on sightseeing trips and were traveling from Sulphur Creek Ranch near Cascade to Dixie on a tour of backcountry airstrips.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
