SALT LAKE CITY — Two Salt Lake men were killed Tuesday in a plane crash in Idaho.
David Ray Fitzgerald, 57, and Randy Scott Butters, 61, died when the plane they were flying crashed near Yellow Pine, Idaho, in southeast Idaho County.
The Idaho County Sheriff's Office was notified of the crash at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday. The next day, the Idaho Bureau of Aeronautics, the Civil Air Patrol and the Idaho National Guard of Boise located the crash site. The bodies were recovered and taken to a funeral home in Grangeville.
Fitzgerald was believed to be piloting the single-engine experimental high-wing airplane, according to the Idaho County Sheriff's Office. Fitzgerald and Butters were traveling from Sulphur Creek Ranch near Cascade to Dixie during a sightseeing trip.
The families of the victims have been notified, and the crash remained under investigation.
