2 Dead In Eastern Montana Plane Crash

Phot From icfn.net

Authorities say two men from Miles City died when their single-engine plane crashed and burst into flames in eastern Montana.

Rosebud County Sheriff Randy Allies confirmed the two deaths, saying it was two males from Miles City. He said he did not know their ages and declined to release additional details because he had not yet reached the family of one of the deceased.

An autopsy was planned for Friday.

Allies said two hunters heard the airplane flying and then a loud explosion as it crashed in a remote area of pastureland near the small community of Vananda. Allies added that the crash took place in “pretty rough country” and that it took rescue crews about an hour to reach the scene.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said the Piper PA-18 Super Cub took off from Miles City Thursday morning.
