Brothers in Aircraft Crash Presumed Dead



(CODY, WY) – Two elderly men on a flight bound for Twin Falls that crashed last week are presumed dead. Brothers Robert and Ward Zimmerman took off from an airport in Cody, Wyoming on Saturday, but their plane crashed for unknown reasons just east of Yellowstone National Park. The plane was found Monday on a steep ridge prone to avalanche danger. Officials say it’s too risky to conduct a recovery operation until the snow melts.
