Federal Investigators Blame Ice, Snow On Crash That Killed Nine In Chamberlain Plane Crash In 2019

(Chamberlain, SD) — The National Transportation Safety Board says snow and ice were to blame for the crash of a small plane that killed nine people and seriously injured three others who were flying from Chamberlain to Idaho in 2019. Members of a prominent Idaho family were returning from their annual South Dakota hunting trip in November of 2019 when their plane crashed shortly after takeoff from the Chamberlain airport. Investigators say the pilot made operational errors trying to remove the ice and snow from the aircraft that resulted in the crash, which was the deadliest in South Dakota since 1968.
