SHINGLETOWN, Calif. - Family members are speaking out about the Shasta County man killed in a plane crash with his dog in late August.
71 year old Richard Engel moved to Shingletown just over a year ago. A few months ago he bought his Cessna 150 plane.
His sister, Colleen Schneider, says Engel was an adventurer growing up. She said he and his dog, named Frodo, did everything together.
Schneider said the two of them were quite a pair. She said he would always take Frodo with him in the plane, since he was a puppy.
Family members say Engel will be missed, but said he died with his best friend, doing what he loved.
