10/14/2009: Fatal L-19 crash in Colorado. Pilot flew into rising terrain, and stalled. This crash occurred near Tabernash, Colorado, on August 10th, 1984 at approximately 1300 hours. The plane disappeared and was not located again until August 23rd, 1987 3 years later by a pair of backpackers. Mountain Village police chief investigated the crash and also re-assembled the video tape. The pilot had an operating video camera in the plane which crashed due to "continued flight into ascending terrain" combined with high-density altitude; along with bad decision-making on the part of the pilot regarding the steep right-hand bank in an attempt (proving fatal) to turn around, the pilot unwittingly recorded his own death (along with his buddy in the back seat). Watch the video here. Read the NTSB report here.

06/18/2011: Flightstar experiences engine failure, while flying low over a forest. (Watch the video here. View the NTSP report here)
