The National Transportation Safety Board in a report earlier this month says the small plane stalled during the escape maneuver and crashed Sept. 2 about 15 miles (24 kilometers) southeast of Cascade in a wilderness area.
Fifty-year-old David Henderson of Boise died and 54-year-old Andrew D. Akin of Griffin, Georgia, had to be extracted by helicopter from the mountainous area.
Authorities say Griffin reported that he and Henderson, a cousin and also a pilot, planned to take the airplane to a backcountry airstrip.
