NTSB Begins Investigation Into Roy Plane Crash

ROY, Utah — Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board have begun their investigation into what caused a twin-engine Cessna to crash into a Roy neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators said they will be on scene over the next day or two, but are working to pick up the wreckage by Thursday night ahead of stormy weather expected to hit early Friday morning.

They said a preliminary report will be issued in one to two weeks. Information as to what exactly caused the crash could take 12 to 24 months.

A spokesperson with NTSB said the plane went down at 3:11 p.m. Wednesday, and was one of two  planes owned by Goode Ski Technologies.

They said during the 11-minute flight from Bountiful to Ogden, the pilot had been cleared for landing on the runway. He told the controllers “he was going down,” but no further transmission was made after that.

A KSL viewer shared a photo of the plane as it flew north along I-15 when it suddenly turned and fell from the sky.

The pilot, was later identified as 64 year old David Goode, the founder and president of Goode Ski Technologies in Ogden.

Goode’s business declined to comment Thursday, but issued a statement on their website. It reads in part:

“It is with a heavy heart that GOODE skis announces the passing of its founder and president, Dave Goode. Dave, 64, died Wednesday while taking part in one of his many passions, piloting his airplane.”

NTSB has some video of the crash, but they are looking for more. If you witnessed the accident, or you have video, officials asked that you email Witness@ntsb.gov.
