Indiana: The pilot of a small aircraft was killed after a plane crashed in Connersville

Indiana State Police Pendleton District troopers are assisting the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) in the investigation of the crash in Fayette County that occurred Wednesday night.

Witnesses say that they heard the loud boom shortly before 11:00 p.m. last night.

Law enforcement officers, volunteer fire fighters from several agencies and civilians attempted to locate the aircraft from the ground. Fire fighters from the Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department located the aircraft in a corn field approximately 2.5 miles southeast of the airport.

Investigators believe the plane crashed as it was coming in for a landing at Connersville Airport.

There was no fire, and the crash was severe enough that they couldn't tell if there were any passengers other than the pilot on board.

Fayette County Coroner Vicky Wysong was on the scene, and determined that the pilot was the one fatality.
