A pilot suffers minor injuries when his glider crashes on Forest Service Road 4603 near Tumalo Falls.  John Bentley, 52, of Bend says he had been flying for about an hour when he experienced an irrecoverable loss of lift west of Bend and attempted to land on the road. 

 

Deputy Liam Katt with the Deschutes County Sheriff says the glider's 66 foot wingspan clipped a small tree as it crashed.

 

Bentley declined any medical attention at the scene. The FAA and NTSB were notified of the crash and representatives of both agencies spoke with Bentley before the glider was removed from the scene.  Deputy Katt says Bentley is an experienced pilot with about 30 years of flying gliders and power aircraft.
