BRANSON WEST, MISSOURI (December 19, 2017) – Dawn Curtis was confirmed to be one of the two people that was sadly killed in an aviation accident in Missouri on Sunday, according to an article by KansasCity.com. (map)
The accident happened around 6:45 pm on Sunday evening. A Piper PA-180 was on approach to the Branson West Muni Airport when it crashed into a pasture about a mile away from the airport, with a couple from Gardner, Kansas on board. Witnesses at the scene have stated that it sounded like the plane was having engine trouble prior to the accident.
Dawn Curtis, 45, was tragically killed in the accident. Her husband, Keith Curtis, was also killed. Keith and Dawn had just married on November 11th, and Sunday’s trip was a pre-Christmas family vacation. Keith was piloting the aircraft, and had just received his pilot’s license in August. The plane, a Piper PA-180, had just been sold to Keith in July from a construction company.
