On August 14, 2011, about 1000 mountain daylight time, a Beech A36, N324AT, collided with terrain near Lander, Wyoming. The pilot was operating the airplane under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91. The private pilot and one passenger sustained fatal injuries; the airplane sustained substantial damage by impact forces and post crash fire. The cross-country personal flight departed Driggs, Idaho, with a planned destination of Front Range Airport, Denver, Colorado.
