Alan Hutchison learned from Facebook on the morning of May 15 that there was going to be an attempted recovery that day of the small plane that had crashed in the treetops in the Kettle Moraine State Forest near Rice Lake on May 26. The Banner report on the crash may be found here. Mr. Hutchison kindly gave permission for the Banner to share the photos above that he took of the helicopter and the recovery.
WKOW.com also has a report, with video, on the helicopter recovery.
Federal Aviation Administrator investigators visited the scene of the crash soon after the incident.
