Thread: Scenic Mountain Air

  1. #1

    Default Scenic Mountain Air

    I heard late yesterday that Vern had crashed his 206 in the last 7-10 days! I have no details other than being told the plane was a total loss and apparently there were no injuries (thank God).

    I checked out the news sites, but no mention of any plane crash involving Vern or Scenic Mountain. Am I being led astray or what's the word out there?

    Anyone have any info?

    This was in the data base. It is the only 206 accient in the last few days for Alaska. Not sure if it is Vern's plane or not.

    Default That must be it

    That is Vern's tail number, and I know that he was working out of Galena. The time frame doesn't fit with what I was told, but didn't get much good info to begin with.

    Crashed into trees, but no injuries! Is it better to be lucky or good, or both.

    Thanks for finding this info for me.
