Ice Patrol has lost one of its contributors to a fatal plane crash on Lake of the Woods.
I recently learned that the pilot who died in the vicinity of Shore Island in late September was Josh Broten.
He was the sole occupant of the plane, his Arion Lightning.
Josh was an early and regular contributor to Ice Patrol, sharing many photos of the spring ice conditions taken on flights from his home base in Roseau, Minnesota. He was an enthusiastic and cheerful correspondent, and clearly loved our lake.
I’m sad that I never had the chance to meet him in person.
You can see his obituary here.
That’s all for now.
