Huntingburg (Local Sources) – Airport Manager Travis McQueen, who led the group of first responders to the scene of Wednesday’s single-engine plane crash at Huntingburg Regional Airport says he spoke with pilot
Steve Miller, by phone late Wednesday evening, whom was at his Huntingburg-area home after being treated for a cut to the head earlier at Memorial Hospital in Jasper.

“Steve was very appreciative for the “Quick Response” by the First Responders making their way
to the Huntingburg Airport in response to his aircraft incident” McQueen stated.

The incident remains under investigation by the FAA, whom arrived Wednesday afternoon to
gather specifics about the incident. The FAA conducted their investigation, gathering information
and expected to turn over their report to the NTSB, whom will issue a initial written report in 7-
10 business days.

“Yesterday proved, that we have excellent first responders, on the front line, whom are our
neighbors and family members. Without their efforts and time, life and property would not be
saved” McQueen stated. “We need to recognize those guys, making Dubois County a great place
to work and live”.
