In August, three people were killed in a Davis County plane crash. The downed Cessna 182 was found in a very remote part of Session Mountain. In June, a plane crashed in Tooele County, killing a woman and her granddaughter. That crash sparked the Morgan Canyon Fire. Earlier that month, a man was killed after his plane crashed through the roof of a North Logan home.
