A small airplane crashed Friday near the Grand Canyon and is blocking a portion of Highway 64 in Tusayan, the National Park Service tweeted.

Grand Canyon NPS tweeted a road closure alert shortly before 11:30 a.m. for northbound and southbound lanes on Highway 64, just south of the south entrance station.

FAA officials said a single-engine Cessna Caravan made an emergency landing around 10:40 a.m. on a road two miles north of Grand Canyon Airport.


Looks like a skydiving plane from the GC airport, I'm guessing engine failure and couldn't make it back to the field. Only the pilot was still on board, injuries but alright.

Your use of the word "crashes" in your thread title makes it sound as if the crash will happen later today.

Landing probably would have gone smoother if he'd attempted it with the wheels down.

No place for older men
Crashing on a road where the amber lamps can get to you is probably a much better idea than being over the Grand Canyon and sending up a smudge of black smoke from some inaccessible spot deep in the canyon.
