Recovery of Colorado Airplane Crash Victims Delayed Until the Spring | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

On New Year’s Eve of 2008, the Associated Press reported that the bodies of a Canadian couple killed in an airplane crash in the Colorado mountains won’t be recovered until spring because of treacherous weather and avalanche threats.  Costilla County officials say that the 67 year-old pilot and his 65 year-old wife are presumed dead in the December 20th airplane accidental crash at
Vermejo Peak.  Sheriff’s Office officials say the aircraft crash wreckage is more than 1,000 feet higher than expected.  That peak received more than a foot of snow last week.
