Author Richard Bach remains in serious condition Wednesday at Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center, where he is recovering from injuries suffered when his small plane crashed on San Juan Island.

Bach’s son,  James Bach, said Sunday his father was lucid and had improved since the accident Friday left him with a head injury and broken shoulder.

The elder Bach, an avid pilot, was flying alone on his way to visit a friend on San Juan Island when the plane went down. San Juan County Sheriff Rob Nou said the preliminary investigation indicates Bach was attempting to land on a grass airstrip and caught overhead power lines with the landing gear as he neared the runway.

The 76-year-old Richard Bach had a New York Times No. 1 best seller in 1970 with “Jonathan Livingston Seagull.” He moved to Orcas Island about 20 years ago
