Keaton Snow

Airplane/Fire heros

Keaton Snow of La Grande Oregon was on a night training flight last night with his instructor Jay, over the city of Bend. In the early morning hours he spotted a glowing light in the distance. He flew over to take at closer look.. When they realized it was a fire threatening some nearby homes...they quickly notified the authorities. Keaton decided to fly some low patterns over the homes, as a way to awake the local residents... This seemed to work and later that morning a homeowner callled the airport trying to find out who the pilots were. They were very grateful to be woke up and for their quick response-even called them local heroes! ...If it wasn't for them their homes and families would have been threatened. The Bend newspaper and local TV station ( KTVZ) will be covering the story tonight in their local broadcast The radio broadcast quoted this this morning...

"two unknown pilots fly low over neighborhood houses as blazing fire approaches homes to wake residents ... Residents call the local pilots heroes for saving houses".
