Dale "Snort" Snodgrass, one of the warbird world’s most respected pilots, was reportedly killed on Saturday in the crash of a Marchetti SM.109 in Lewiston, Idaho. Details remain sketchy but the crash occurred just after noon. The aircraft is a high-wing STOL design based on the Cessna 0-1 Bird Dog built by the Italian manufacturer. Snodgrass is known for his many airshow performances in warbirds and was revered in the warbird community.
