ELBERT COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)- The second person who died in a small plane crash in Elbert County on Sunday has been identified as David Kenneth McIntosh, 47, from Elizabeth.
The crash happened at the Rocky Mountain Airpark located at Smoky Hill Ranches east of Parker. Witness Kelly Martyniak said the plane corkscrewed to the ground.
“There was no way he was going to pull it out … and the speed in which he was corkscrewing, I thought, ‘There’s no way,’” Martyniak said.
Martyniak said there was no smoke or flames coming from the plane. She said at times she’s seen planes doing tricks but didn’t think this plane was performing tricks.
On Sunday CBS4 learned the name of one of the occupants. He’s been identified as Pete Vinton, who was the developer of the landing strip. Vinton was piloting the plane.
Some area residents have made objections to the airpark saying there have been too many crashes.
