BREAKING: Small plane crashes at Bryan Flat in Hoback Canyon

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – A light, two-person aircraft has crashed along Highway 191 at Bryan Flat.

The pilot of the plane was not seriously injured and was transported by ground to St. John’s Hospital. The incident occurred at approximately 3:06pm.

The yellow plane, with tail number N44CP could be seen upside-down near the iconic moose statue at Bryan Flat. It is a Zenith CH 701 single-engine fixed wing craft.

The pilot has not yet been identified. The plane is registered to a Charles Peet with an address on Bryan Flat Road.

If it was Peet and his Zenith, it is not the first time the plane has crashed. The 85-year-old crashed that same plane in June 2013 at the same place. He walked away from that wreck with only scratches. Peet built the kit plane some seven years ago.

NTSB has requested photos of the scene for its investigation.

Plan narrowly missed iconic moose statue after circling several times in obvious distress before an attempt to set down was a rough one.
