3 Local Men Survive Plane Crash

As the stalled twin-engine airplane carrying Sean Henry and several other men crashed into the ground Monday at Glacier Park International Airport, Henry thought, "OK, Jesus, here I come." "We all thought we were dying," said Henry, owner of Rock & Water, a high-end pool and custom water feature design and installation company headquartered in Hayden. Along with his business partner, Jonathan Kersey, and the company's landscape architect, Fred Ogram, Henry was traveling to northwest Montana to meet with a client when the crash occurred. The skies were clear when the plane took off from North Idaho, Henry said. The chartered Beech Baron flew through a series of clouds before approaching the airport near Kalispell and Whitefish. As the pilot directed the aircraft in to land, icing caused the plane to stall and drop, Henry said/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here. (Courtesy photo via Coeur d'Alene Press)
