Accident occurred Friday, August 10, 1984 in TABERNASH, CO leaving 2 Dead. Footage is about 25 years old, and was found a few years after the crash. Scary stuff. .
Information about the crash ..... The airplane departed Grandby
8/10/84 and failed to arrive at its destination. On 8/23/87, it was found on
the slope of a high tree-covered ridge. Video tape recovered from the wreckage
provided a visual and audio record of the flight from takeoff to impact.
Comparing the recording to a topographical map, the flight was slowly climbing
but its altitude above the ground was decreasing when it crashed at the
10,200-ft level. During the last few seconds of the tape, the terrain dominated
the view through the cockpit window. The pilot made an approximately 45 to
55-deg angle bank to the right, and the stall warning horn could be heard 3
times during the aprx. 180 deg of turn. The airplane subsequently stalled 3
times, spun, flipped over, and entered the trees. The density altitude was just
above 13,000 ft
