Long EZ Crash
« on: September 07, 2011, 05:11:30 PM »
Found this on aopa...

Near Kanab, Utah, an amateur built Long-Ez went down fatally injuring the pilot, apparently on his way to a fly-in.

Anybody know more about this?

Thanks,

It was Don Brewster coming back to Kanab from a sight seeing tour of Bryce Canyon.
He was in a flight I believe of 5 aircraft returning to Kanab where there was a Canard Flyin.
He struck a tree 5 miles out on a direct approach to Kanab.
No more details at this time

His friend from El Paso, who collected up the pieces thinks Don suffered an incapacitation that led to the forced landing...
