Kenneth Chapman identified as Spokane man killed in Idaho airplane crash

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office identified the Spokane man killed in an Saturday Idaho plane crash. The news came that Kenneth D. Chapman was the pilot who died at the scene when his Cessna crashed into a hillside.

Chapman, 70, was found when deputies responded the call of a plane crash around 3:00 p.m., finding the downed plane was about 25 yards up a steep embankment on Forest Service Road 794. It was described as a “forested area near Horsehaven.”

Horsehaven is about 40 miles east of Coeur d’Alene.

Chapman was the only occupant in his 1966 Cessna 185 plane when, for an unknown reason, he crashed into the hillside, officials said.

Detectives are investigating the cause of the crash and investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board, as well as the Federal Aviation Administration will investigate as well.
