BOISE, Idaho (AP) – Authorities have released the name of a Colorado pilot killed in a midair collision involving two small private planes in central Idaho.
Valley County Coroner Nathan Hess on Thursday told the Idaho Statesman that 45-year-old Michael A. Bond died in the Monday morning crash about 30 miles east of Cascade.
Authorities say 52-year-old Amy Hoover of Ellensburg, Washington, landed her plane in a grassy area after the collision.
The plane carrying Bond crashed and caused a small fire. Both pilots were flying alone.
Hess told The Associated Press the pilots were working together but he didn’t know the circumstances.
He also didn’t know Bond’s hometown.
