Hikers Find Crashed Airplane, Remains
Aircraft Missing Since October
LAKE KACHESS, Wash. -- The wreckage of a small jet, missing since October, has been found in the Cascade mountains west of Lake Kachess.
Kittitas County Undersheriff Clay Myers says pieces of the 40-foot-long aircraft were discovered recently by hikers in a heavily wooded area.
The Czechoslovakian-made L-39 training jet disappeared after the pilot reported an apparent mechanical problem as the aircraft was flying from Seattle's Boeing Field to Idaho. The pilot was identified as 45-year-old Rocky Stewart of Hollister, Calif., and 46-year-old Scott Smith, of San Francisco.
The search for them had been called off about a week after the jet vanished.
Myers says some remains and personal effects were found at the wreckage site.
