Two people are dead after an early morning plane crash in Charlevoix County. County Sheriff Don Schneider says both the pilot and his passenger likely died on impact. He says it’s not clear why the two were traveling.
“We’re surmising that they left Boyne City airport” says Schneider. “We understand that they were probably headed down towards Birmingham, Michigan.”
Conditions were difficult for first responders – who first arrived on the remote scene by snowmobile. The county road commission later cleared a path for trucks and heavier equipment.
9-1-1 received the call at about 7:12 this morning.
