A private pilot and his passenger escaped serious injury when their plane made a forced landing near Togwotee Pass.  Sheriff’s officials say an eye witness reported the incident about 11:25 Sunday morning and response was dispatched from Teton County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS, Teton County Search and Rescue and Grand Teton National Park.  Then around noon, Teton County Dispatch received a call from the pilot who had obtained a ride to a location there was cell phone service and reported that no one had been injured in the incident.  Park rangers arrived on the scene about ten minutes later and confirmed that everyone was fine.  The single-engine plane sustained damage to the landing gear and the underside of the plane. The name of the pilot and his passenger were not immediately available, but the two were on a flight from Alpine to Riverton, Wyoming.  The incident is now in the hands of the National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
