  • A convoy of about 20 rescue vehicles heading up the North Fork road towards the Spur 10 gate, 8:30 Friday morning. Not near Bandera so possibly not related.

  • Regarding previous comment.
    This sound right about the crash site. Flight tracker shows plane crashing near Hancock/Calligan Lakes, not near Bandera.
