Eight passengers, the co-pilot and pilot were aboard the plane and were reported as walking and ok by the emergency personnel.

It was unknown whether the plane was ascending or descending at the time of the incident.

They say any landing you walk away from is a good one, evidently that sometimes applies to take-offs, too.

I’ve never heard of a Pueblo, NM but you make a good point.

I live in the Four Corners area.

I have not been out that way in a few years. As I remember there is a fairly decent Air Museum on the SE?? corner of the Pueblo Airport. Back in WW II it was a Bomber Training Base.

I saw that. I have brothers in Canon City and Westcliff in the Wet Mountains.

Tonight and tomorrow will be pretty rough along the Front Range. Stay warm.

Thanks, that is very interesting! I always believed Washington was the most common city name in America but now I know.
