The light twin-engined aircraft is believed to have taken off from the Canyonlands Field Airport in south eastern Utah. It headed off in a southerly direction, but it would appear that the pilot then attempted an emergency landing in the desert. The aircraft "pancacked’ during the landing and caught fire, skidding through the desert for about 300m, before coming to a stop.
The wreckage was completely burnt out.
