The plane was completely (other than just the tail) was fully inside the home, it went right through the roof of the two story house. According to the Idaho State Journal, Responders worked at the scene for hours after the crash. A medical examiner was called to the scene, and firefighters have been in contact with the National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates plane crashes, to properly document the site before the aircraft is removed.
We have not heard from the homeowners yet either. Thank goodness again that no one was home when the impact happened. Where they just at work for the day when the plane crashed or are they out on vacation with a very interesting situation to come home from? Could you imagine going home to find a plane in your house? Our thoughts and prayers go out to the pilots family and loved ones.
