This happened about 200 yards from the motel office. Local retired airplane pilot in a experimental plane went down today right next door to us. Word is that he has crashed before almost in the same spot about a year ago. Lots of sirens, emergency vehicles, that we aren’t used to hearing around here. Witness said he was ok and taken to Alpine medical center for evaluation. Took down a power line so some lost power for a while. We never did. Some excitement for Marathon Texas!!
