Micron CEO Steve Appleton Has Died In A Boise Plane Crash

By Associated Press,

BOISE, Idaho A small experimental plane piloted by the chief executive and chairman of Micron Technology Inc. crashed after take-off Friday at the Boise airport, killing the head of the Idaho memory chip maker who survived a similar crash eight years ago.

Steve Appleton, a professional stunt pilot and former motor cross racer, was the only person aboard the plane when witnesses said it steeply banked, stalled and rolled to the ground, according to Zoe Keliher, air safety investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board. It was the aircrafts second take-off attempt for the morning.

Appletons death was confirmed by Micron spokesman Dan Fransicso, and trading in the companys stock was halted. The companys shares have traded between $3.97 and $11.95 over the past year, and shares were up 23 cents at $7.95 Friday before the announcement.

Steves passion and energy left an indelible mark on Micron, the Idaho community and the technology industry at large, Microns board of directors said in a prepared statement.

The weather was apparently clear and dry. Sounds like failure of some sort. Risky hobby.
