Plane Recovered And Pilot Identified In Lake Tulloch Crash

Crews recovered the plane and the body of the pilot yesterday, two days after the aircraft crashed into Lake Tulloch. The pilot was the only person aboard the plane when it went down, and has been identified as Trent Johnson. The plane was found around noon Monday about 110 feet underwater. By Tuesday afternoon, crews were able to recover the plane with Johnson’s body found inside. A witness told authorities that the plane hit power lines about 11:45 Sunday morning and went into the lake nose-first near the Poker Flat area and sank. The crash is under investigation by local and federal aviation officials.
