Instructor Fatally Injured In Utah Accident Was Helping Another Pilot

CFI Did Not Know The Man He Offered To Train So He Could Fly His Plane Home

Pilots are known, for the most part, to be a helpful group of people, so it's probably not surprising to hear that a flight instructor in Utah offered to help a fellow pilot get up to speed in an unfamiliar airplane so that he could get home. Both were fatally injured when the airplane went down in an alfalfa field last Thursday.

The instructor was Robert Lamb of Woodland Hills, just south of Provo, UT. The pilot was Peter Morwiec of Ontario, Canada. Lamb had offered to give Morwiec, whom he had not previously met, five hours of free instruction in an Alarus CH2000 aircraft so that he could fly it back to Canada. According to a report in the Deseret News, Lamb told his wife he hoped that if he were stranded and couldn't get home that someone would help him out.

Witnesses told the paper that the airplane went down as a thunderstorm was approaching the area. Rancher Reid Jarrett said that the plane "just literally went up and turned and came straight down and hit." The plane went down near Nephi Municipal Airport (U14).

Lamb had been a licensed pilot for more than 20 years, but had only recently become a CFI and started a flight training business at Spanish Fork Airport (U77).
