May 3, 2014 - Sometime after Marshall sold the aircraft, it was extensively damaged in a late afternoon forced landing, thankfully with only minor injuries. According to press reports, the aircraft was on its way from Washington state to New Mexico. They took off from KDLS intending to land at KPVU for the night, but lost power short of their destination. FlightAware.com shows a flight of approximately 512nm (589sm) ending about 17nm northwest of KPVU. With a flight of that distance for this type of aircraft, fuel and flight planning are a likely focus of the investigation. See NTSB report
