Plane Crash Kills Reporters, 2 Others

Four young western Montanans were found dead late Wednesday afternoon in the wreckage of the small plane they took on a weekend sightseeing flight. Dead are Sonny Kless and Brian Williams of Missoula, and Erika Hoefer and Melissa Weaver of Kalispell. A Border Patrol helicopter spotted the plane in the Revais Creek area at 2 p.m., but could not land because the terrain is extremely rugged, very steep and heavily timbered. The crash site was very near the last GPS and radar contact the Federal Aviation Administration had with the aircraft on Sunday afternoon, when Kless took his three passengers on a sightseeing flight from the Glacier National Park area to the Bison Range and along the Flathead River/Tristan Scott, Missoulian.
