Against medical advice, the injured parties choose to self-transport to an emergency medical facility.

Law enforcement secured the plane. The crash remains under investigation.

In the late 60’s early 70’s, Ol’ Ronnie Regan landed there for a speech and dinner with the cattlemen association. After he told his pilot he would get a ride to to the Paso airport meet him there instead of take off from the risky runway.

I apologize It was for the Women’s Republican club he did the speech for launching his governor campaign .
