Navion Plane Wreck, Early Winter 1953

Navion Plane Wreck

Navion plane wreck that happend early winter of 1953 at Stibnite. The plane carried two Fish and Game officers plus the pilot. The men survived the crash but were banged up pretty good. The plane was laying just off the road that goes south to Thunder Mt., a few hundred feet west of the service station, rec. hall and school house area and several hundred yards from the end of the run way. (X on picture). The tailings pond is the water at the nose of the plane. The pond was used for ice skating when frozen. and in the fall the tailings made a soft bar for playing foot ball. And of course used as a settling pond for mill waste. - Ron Smith
