NTSB description

On August 7, 2009, about 1145 mountain daylight time, a Piper PA22-150, N6905B, was destroyed when it impacted terrain near Saint Charles, Idaho. The airplane was registered to and operated by the pilot under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. The private pilot and his passenger were killed. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the personal flight. The cross-country flight originated from the Ogden-Hinckley Airport (OGD), Ogden, Utah, at 1102 with an intended destination of Alpine, Wyoming.

A witness located about six miles south of the accident site reported observing an airplane similar to the accident airplane fly overhead their position about 500 to 1,000 feet above the ground in a northerly direction. A second witness, located about 2.5 miles south of the accident site, reported observing an airplane consistent with the accident airplane flying over their position at about 300 feet above the trees on a northerly heading. The witness stated that about 30 minutes later, he was stopped by a group of people and was notified of a downed airplane.

Examination of the accident site revealed that the airplane impacted an open field within a heavily wooded mountainous area. The airplane came to rest in an upright position and was consumed by a post-crash fire. All major structural components were located at the accident site.
