Grangeville, Idaho • Two Utah men have died in a small plane crash in north-central Idaho.

Undersheriff Jim Gorges in a news release on Thursday says authorities received a report late Tuesday of a possible airplane crash involving the two men from Salt Lake City.

A search on Wednesday located the crash site. The bodies were recovered and taken to a funeral home in Grangeville.

Gorges says the men often went on sightseeing trips and were traveling from Sulphur Creek Ranch near Cascade to Dixie on a tour of backcountry airstrips.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
