Sorry to hear about this accident. I wonder what went wrong.

It sounds like the pilot had been flying this same plane for 40 years? Impressive.

I have flown out of the Tahoe airport many times. It would appear,sans prop damage, the engine failed.One does not have many options in this terrain when that happens.
God bless his sole.

Sounds like a lovely family... functional even. Sorry they have to go through this tragedy.
