On July 27, 2021, about 0830 central daylight time, a Cessna 182T airplane, N148LP, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Patterson, Louisiana. The pilot sustained a minor injury. The flight was operated under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a business flight.

According to information obtained by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), while in cruise flight, the airplane’s engine surged and went to full power. The pilot attempted to regain control of the engine’s by adjusting the throttle but was unsuccessful. The engine then went to idle and unable to restore engine power, the pilot performed a forced landing. During the landing the airplane nosed over in the watery marsh. The pilot was able to safely egress.

The airplane was recovered and examined by the FAA. When the engine cowling was removed, the nut used to secure the throttle on the throttle body was found loose. The associated cotter pin was not located in the engine compartment.

The airplane was retained for further examination.

On July 27, 2021, about 1105 eastern daylight time, a Socata TBM-700 C2, N48UM, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident at Mount Pleasant Regional Airport-Faison Field (LRO) Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The private pilot and four passengers were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, his visual approach was “uncomfortably fast.” The airplane crossed over the threshold of the 3,700 ft-long runway at 125 to 130 knots and touched down on “the first 1/3 to the middle 1/3 of the runway.” He applied brakes, but the runway was wet and slick. Unable to stop on the remaining runway the pilot attempted to move the throttle from beta to full to abort the landing, but the throttle “stuck.” The airplane subsequently came to rest about 325 ft past the end of the runway.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration inspector who responded to the accident site and conducted an initial examination of the airplane, the engine mounts and left wing sustained substantial damage. The flaps were found in the “TAKEOFF” position. All engine and flight controls were intact from the cockpit controls to their respective control surfaces, and they functioned normally. In addition, examination of the brakes revealed no anomalies.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Instructional

On July 26, 2021, about 1320 Alaska daylight time, a Cessna 172P airplane, N65698, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Eagle River, Alaska. The flight instructor and private pilot received fatal injuries. The flight was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 instructional flight.

The flight, operated by Angel Aviation Inc., Anchorage, Alaska, originated from Merrill Field Airport (MRI), Anchorage, Alaska, about 1215 and was destined for Girdwood Airport (AQY), Girdwood, Alaska. 

After departing MRI, the airplane proceeded northbound near Palmer, Alaska before turning towards the Knik Glacier. The flight, scheduled as a “discovery flight,” was scheduled to last from 1200 until 1400.

When the airplane did not arrive at AQY , a concerned family member referenced a tracking application which showed the airplane had stopped moving in the area of the Eagle River Valley, then notified authorities. About 1700, an alert notice (ALNOT) was issued and a search was initiated, which involved the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center, Civil Air Patrol and other good Samaritan aircraft. About 2245, the wreckage was located in an area of steep, rising glacial terrain at an elevation of about 3,100 ft.


An NTSB post-accident examination revealed that all major components remained attached at their respective attach points. Flight control continuity was established from all control surfaces to the cockpit. Internal engine continuity was confirmed through rotation of the propeller.

The airplane was equipped with an Ameri-King Corporation AK-451-2 emergency locator transmitter (ELT) certified in accordance with technical standards order (TSO) C-126 and C091(a). The ELT remained secure in it’s cradle and the wires and antenna remained attached. During the search, no signals were received from the 406MHz or 121.5MHz system.

The ELT has been retained for further testing.

UPDATE, Wednesday, 9:30 a.m.:

Troopers have identified the two adults killed in a small plane crash in Chugach State Park Monday as 23-year-old Anchorage resident Dakota Bauder and 27-year-old Hawaii resident McKenna Vierra. 

According to the Alaska State Troopers, next of kin has been notified, and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash.

Original story:

Troopers say the two adult occupants of a plane that crashed in the Chugach Mountains north of Anchorage on Monday are dead. 

According to an online report, troopers were notified of an overdue plane Monday around 8 p.m., and found the wreckage of a plane just before 11 p.m. 

On a phone call Tuesday, Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Austin McDaniel said the wreckage was found in a steep, mountainous area of Eagle River Valley in Chugach State Park.

The plane was a 1982 Cessna 172 P that took off from Merrill Field. It traveled up the Knik River Valley toward Knik Glacier and Lake George before heading south into Chugach State Park.  

According to Federal Aviation Administration records and the tail number provided by troopers, the aircraft belongs to Angel Aviation, a flight school and aircraft rental company. 

Recovery efforts were underway throughout the day Tuesday.

Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal

On July 23, 2020, about 1510 Alaska daylight time, a float-equipped Piper PA-14 airplane, N4206H, sustained substantial damage when it’s rudder structurally failed in flight about 15 miles southeast of Anchorage, Alaska. The commercial pilot was uninjured. The airplane was being operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 flight.

The pilot reported that while in level cruise flight, frequent left and right rudder inputs were required to keep the inclinometer centered, similar to a light turbulence encounter. The airplane then began to experience a constant yaw, with elevator adjustments required to maintain level flight. He stated that the oscillation then stopped and a “a very large right rudder input” was required to maintain the course heading.

An initial examination of the rudder revealed that the vertical spar tube separated just above the upper hinge point and the top portion of the rudder folded over the horizontal stabilizer tail brace wires. 

The pilot reported that the rudder was most recently overhauled in 2001. At that time, it was sandblasted, inspected, powder coated, covered and painted. At the time of the accident, the rudder, P/N 40622-07, had about 381 hours since overhaul and 2691 total hours since new.

On July 26, 2021, about 1318 Pacific daylight time, a Bombardier Inc., CL-600-2B16 airplane, N605TR, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Truckee, California. The pilot, copilot and 4 passengers were fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) data and preliminary air traffic control (ATC) audio from the Federal Aviation Administration, the airplane departed Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, about 1145 (see Figure 1) and made a left turn to the south. The flight crew was in contact with ATC throughout the duration of the flight. As the airplane was passing over northwestern Nevada, ATC began issuing descent instructions for the airplane’s approach into Truckee-Tahoe Airport (TRK). Once the airplane descended below 26,000 ft, ATC advised the flight crew to expect the RNAV (GPS) Runway 20 approach at TRK. The flight crew accepted the approach but requested to circle to runway 11 for the longer runway and the controller told them to expect the circling approach. After coordinating with the TRK tower, the controller informed the flight crew that they would be number two for TRK and could expect some delays. ATC then cleared the airplane to hold north of the ALVAA waypoint, the initial approach fix to the RNAV runway 20 approach. After one turn in holding (see Figure 2), ATC cleared the airplane for the RNAV runway 20 approach, cancelled radar services, and instructed the pilot to contact the TRK tower. The flight crew established communication with the TRK tower controller when they were near the LUMMO waypoint, located about 9.6 nm north of the approach end of runway 20. The tower controller offered the flight crew the option of crossing over the field and enter the left downwind leg for runway 29 or to enter downwind leg for runway 11. Once the flight crew announced they were making a right turn (see Figure 3) and reported runway 11 in sight, the controller then cleared them to land on runway 11 and informed them that the airplane was not in sight. The flight crew acknowledged the clearance, which was their final radio communication. 





Multiple eyewitnesses observed the airplane before the crash. Some reported that the airplane caught their attention because of its low altitude and abnormal flight path into runway 11. According to witnesses, the airplane was in a nose down attitude and steep left turn during its last few seconds of flight. A witness located about 50 ft from the accident site reported that he observed the airplane come from the northwest about 20 ft above the trees. The airplane then entered a steep left turn and banked erratically just before it impacted trees and then the ground. The witnesses close to the accident site stated that the airplane appeared intact when they first observed it.

Three surveillance videos captured the accident flight’s final movements and were all consistent with the witness’ recounts.

The accident site was located on a hillside between a golf course fairway and a residential street. The airplane was consumed by postcrash fire. A debris path, which measured about 225 ft long and 85 ft wide was marked by several broken trees and was oriented on an easterly heading. (see Figure 4). The initial point of impact was identified by a severed tree that stood about 70 ft tall, located about 120 ft west of the main wreckage. Portions of the right and left wings and control surfaces were found fragmented along the debris path. Additional airframe fragments were collocated with the main wreckage, which was comprised of both engines, the empennage, and fuselage remnants.

According to FAA regulations, the airplane was required to have, at a minimum, a 30-minute Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) and an 18 parameter Flight Data Recorder (FDR). The airplane was equipped with recorders that exceeded these requirements. The FDR and CVR were recovered and were successfully read out by the NTSB’s Vehicle Recorder Lab, and the data is being analyzed.

Two of the victims were from California, two were from Minnesota, one was from Texas and one was from Mexico, Nevada County Sheriff’s officials confirmed Wednesday.

Family members had previously, unofficially identified Thomas Bret Ebaugh, 56, as one of the pilots in the crash. Colleagues also said Ryan Thomas, 38, and Christine Thomas, 33, founders of real estate agency Hideaway Properties in La Quinta, died in the crash, along with 34-year-old Kevin Kvarnlov, a Hideaway associate.

Nevada County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Andrew Trygg confirmed those four identities as well as both remaining victims: 43-year-old Alberto Montero De Collado De La Rosa of Mexico, and 62-year-old John Dunn of Dallas. Authorities gave Ebaugh’s residence as Lakeville, Minnesota, and Kvarnlov’s as Mendota Heights, Minnesota.

Trygg added that both Ebaugh and Montero De Collado De La Rosa were the pilots.

Officials had said previously that the identification process would take a few months due to the fire that sparked after the crash. Trygg said the process happened much faster than expected because the Sheriff’s Office was able to acquire DNA evidence from a family member and officials had obtained surveillance footage from Coeur D’Alene Airport, the jet’s departure location.

The incident involved a Bombardier CL-600-2B16 Challenger 605 that was attempting to land at Truckee-Tahoe Airport, when it crashed and started a quarter-acre fire near Ponderosa Golf Course, according to local law enforcement and the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Federal Aviation Administration reported the flight, which had been scheduled to travel from Coeur D’Alene in Idaho before continuing to Thermal in Riverside County and finally to Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles, had four passengers and two crew members on board.

John Kenneth "Ken" Dunn
1958 - 2021

John Kenneth (Ken) Dunn, 62, died unexpectedly in a tragic plane crash on Monday, July 26, 2021, while traveling with friends to one of his favorite places on earth, Truckee, California. Ken was born on September 15, 1958 in Bellefonte, PA to Peter and Sonya Dunn. Ken received a Bachelor of Business Administration from Louisiana State University and an MBA from the University of Arkansas. While working in the real estate industry, Ken met the love of his life, Christie Manos and they married on December 21, 1996. 

Together Ken and Christie raised four beautiful children, Katie, Chris, Peter, and Nicki. Ken took great pride in the closeness of family and watching his family grow with the birth of his grandchildren. After an industrious career in banking and real estate, Ken co-founded Rainier Capital in 2003. With his keen instinct for real estate investment, Ken and his partners turned Rainier Capital into a leading commercial real estate investment firm. He had a passion for mentoring people starting out in the business, always eager to offer advice, wisdom, and guidance. Alongside his passion for family and business, Ken was well known for his active life and sense of adventure. Not only did Ken love fast cars and motorcycles, he loved traveling with his father and sons pursuing high adventure sports from skiing, dirt-biking, helicopter trips in Nepal to water sports and boating.

Ken was happiest at their lakehouse with family, golfing at Northwood with friends, or at their house in Truckee, California cycling or playing on another beautiful golf course. His friends describe him as an excellent golfer in "flip flops". With his engaging personality and incredible conversational skills, Ken never met a stranger and had countless friends. He endeared himself to all people, and his sincerity was felt by all. However, his friends and family members agree that there was never a "Ken" encounter without a little sarcasm. Ken lived a beautiful life full of family, success, and adventure. Those who knew him well, saw how his faith in Jesus touched his life and guided him to the realization that of all of his blessings, his family was the dearest to him. 

Ken is survived by his loving wife, Christie, his son Peter Dunn (24), his daughter Nicki Dunn (21), his stepdaughter Katie Schulze (married to John Paul) and his stepson Chris Booras. Ken had three beautiful grandchildren: Libby (9), Ellie (7), and JP (5). His mother Sonya Snow, his brother Peter Dunn (married to Renee), and his sister, Debbie Adams (married to Jimmy) and predeceased by his father, Peter Dunn, as well as a large, loving extended family. A service will be held at Northwood Club on Sunday, August 1, 2021, at 5:00 pm.   A PRIVATE reception will follow.

Kevin Kvarnlov

Hideaway Properties, a real estate agency in La Quinta, announced that its associate Kevin Kvarnlov along with Hideaway members and owners Ryan and Christine Thomas were killed in the crash.


Kvarnlov was originally born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota but as Hideaway Properties put it, "he grew up knowing he always wanted to get out of the cold and find warmer weather."

He moved to the Coachella Valley in 2011 to pursue a career as a golf professional, the business wrote in an email to members. He spent 9 years on the professional staff at The Palms Golf Club and The Plantation Golf Club, before moving to real estate.

In 2019, Kvarnlov joined the Hideaway Properties Team in 2019 as a Real Estate and Membership Associate.

"The Hideaway Properties Team is struggling to deal with the loss of our beloved coworker and friend, Kevin Kvarnlov, and appreciate your understanding during this difficult time," Robert Ravis, the director of real estate for Hideaway, wrote in an email.

On July 23, about 2045 Pacific daylight time, a Cessna 180K airplane, N8884K was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Mt. Hood, Oregon. The pilot and passenger were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilot reported that the engine lost power about 45minutes into the flight, but the propeller continued to spin. Despite the actions of the pilot, cycling the propeller, mixture to full rich, throttle to full power, and carb heat to off, the engine did not regain power. The pilot diverted to Hanel Field (0OR9), Mount Hood, Oregon, with the intent to land on runway 34 but elected to change landing directions to land on runway 16. While on approach to runway 16, the pilot lowered the flaps and began a descent. The airplane subsequently struck a tree about 100 feet north of the runway and collided with terrain. The airplane came to rest in a field covered by shrubs and trees. The right wing, from the tip to midspan, and the right aileron were substantially damaged.

The airplane was relocated to a secure facility for further examination.

On July 26, 2021, about 1400 central daylight time, a Cessna 140, N72129, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The airline transport pilot was seriously injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to the pilot, he completed a preflight inspection of the airplane prior to the flight with no anomalies noted. In addition, he stated there was about 14 gallons of fuel in the airplane and 4 quarts of oil. On the initial climb after the second takeoff, about 100 ft above ground level, the engine “sputtered,” lost total power, and the propeller continued to turn. The pilot executed a forced landing onto a road; however, during the approach the airplane struck a wire pitching the airplane down and impacting the road. The airplane slid about 300 ft and came to rest in the upright position. The airplane incurred substantial damage to the fuselage and wing struts.

The airframe and engine were recovered and will be examined.

On July 24, 2021, about 1830 central daylight time, a Cessna 150F, N7893F, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near Rock Falls, Illinois. The two pilots were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

According to one of the pilots, the two pilots met each other at an aviation event just prior to the accident flight. After a short discussion, the two pilots decided to conduct a local flight in the accident airplane. The pilot and owner, who was seated in the left seat, reported the airplane’s engine needed to be hand-propped due to a “weak starter.” After the engine start-up, the pilots monitored the airplane’s electrical system and performed an engine run-up with no issues noted.

While on downwind after takeoff, the right seat pilot asked to take the airplane’s controls from the left seat pilot, and a positive exchange of controls was accomplished. The pilot then flew a low approach over a temporary grass runway with 40° of flaps extended. The pilot did not intend to land and performed a go-around about 100 ft above the ground with full engine power and carburetor heat in the off position. The pilot then attempted to retract the flaps, and he reported the flaps would not retract. The left seat pilot attempted to cycle the flap switch and was unsuccessful in retracting the flaps. Unable to maintain altitude, the right seat pilot performed an off-airport landing to a corn field. The airplane impacted the corn field, flipped over, and came to rest inverted.

The airplane sustained substantial damage to the engine firewall and engine mount. The airplane and engine were recovered and will be examined.
