Boulder City, NV– A non-military plane crash near the Boulder City Municipal Airport last Sunday (June 23, 2013) left two Nevada National Guardsmen dead. Police were able to identify one of the victims as Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Edwards, 41 years old, a local resident. The name of the other victim has not been released, but he was listed as an aircraft mechanic.
According to the news reports, Edwards and another man were in a single-engine plane on Sunday afternoon. The FAA reported that the plane was trying to land at the airport that afternoon, but encountered a problem and went down roughly 4 miles in a nearby field. Both Edwards and the other man were killed immediately.
Though the cause of the crash is still being investigated, it was noted that 35 mph winds were present that afternoon and that may be a factor in the accident. Edwards was a helicopter repairman and served for 11 years.
