The National Transportation Safety Board has published its findings regarding the fatal crash in 2010 of a small plane carrying a Minnesota man and his three boys as they were reroute to Jackson. That plane went down in wintery weather over the Wind River Mountains onOctober 25th, killing 41 year old Luke Bucklin of Minneapolis and his three boys, twins aged 14 and the other aged 12. According to the report, Bucklin had met with a flight instructor only a few weeks before the crash as he was working on securing a commercial pilot’s license. At that time, the instructor says Bucklin had told him of his plans to fly his single engine plane to Jackson. The report indicates the instructor advised against such a trip over the mountains in such an aircraft at that time of year. The report goes on that a voice recording from the il-fated flight documents a struggle in the last minutes to gain elevation in bad weather. A week-long search followed the crash before the wreckage and the bodies of the family were located near Indian Pass.
