Steve Mathis Waco Biplane Crash

I just received word that Steve Mathis crashed his Waco biplane in the Cerro Summit area today. Steve is in the Montrose hospital, with a broken back, but his daughter says he'll be OK. Steve's blue and creme colored Waco biplane was a common site flying around the valley. Steve and his airplane were the opening act for our Partners fun fly last fall. I'm sure there will be coverage on the news this evening. Check out the Montrose Message Board on Facebook, there is a photo of the crashed airplane. It's a good thing that there was no front seat passenger. Jim F.

Jim, Just saw the report on the news and they didn't give much info on Steve's condition. Hope he heals up OK. By the looks of the plane in the news, He is lucky to be alive! Wonder what happened. My wishes for a speedy recovery are with him.

Folks the last thing I heard or read in the paper was that the crash was caused by engine failure.
