Nature:Private
Departure airport:
Destination airport:Seattle, WA
Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot departed Tonopah, Nevada, on the morning of 9/11/94 with the intention of flying to the Seattle, Washington, area, where he intended to establish a new residence. Although the pilot never arrived in Seattle, family members, who thought he had gone to sea on a merchant ship, did not know the aircraft was missing until it was found by hunters more than a year after it departed Tonopah. Because no one knew the pilot's intended route, or how many days en route he had planned for, the date and time of the accident could not be positively determined. While en route, the aircraft collided with coniferous trees on steeply sloping mountainous terrain. There was no indication of any preimpact airframe or powerplant problems. CAUSE: the pilot's failure to maintain clearance from the terrain.
