Additional Historical Information

27-Feb-1979 Forced landing carried out in rolling terrain after take-off from Cheyenne, WY. The aircraft subsequently collided with a fence, then several oil drums before coming to a halt. There were no fatalities, and only 2 passengers sustained slight injuries. The cause of the forced landing was as a result of an engine failure, and the crews erroneous belief the aircraft was not capable of single engine flight.
