Gary Vogelaar was tracking every movement of their plane, which they nicknamed Baby Blue, through an app on his phone.

“Throughout the day I was checking to see if there was any movement on the tracking and it happened to stop just east of Telluride but because she told me prior that it’s not always accurate, I didn’t think anything of it,”
 he told Fox 17.

Mum Sandy was getting ready for bed on Monday night when she received the terrible news.

“I saw a Sheriff’s car pull up because my windows were still open and I thought that’s kind of strange, but then he came to the door and he verified who I was and who Lindsey was.”

She learned her daughter had died in a crash just minutes after take-off.

Chillingly, Mr Vogelaar took a ride in the doomed plane just three weeks before the crash, during which his son-in-law told him about their plans to elope.

“Costas said ‘one unique thing about being up this high is I tell you something and you don’t like it, there’s the door, and if you like it, we get a safe landing’,”
 he said.

“I said okay… he said Lindsey and I are eloping. We’re going to get married in Telluride. Of course I was very happy about that and I didn’t have to jump out.”


He said Lindsey was an adventure-loving people person who accomplished everything she set her mind to.

“Everyone that came across her just liked her, she was that friendly outgoing type. That’s not just locally here, but throughout the world.”

Meanwhile Mr Sivyllis has been described as “an incredible man” by his friend Ryan McCormick.

“An incredible pilot. An incredible mentor. And an incredible friend,” he wrote in a Facebook tribute.

“His smile was contagious. His attitude was infectious. And his passion and work ethic were inspiring in every sense of the word.”
