Experimental Plane Crashes, Kills 2
CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) - An experimental plane crashed shortly after takeoff Sunday, killing the pilot and a passenger.
Gary Mayer, regional operations officer with the Federal Aviation Administration (news - web sites) in Washington, said investigators would examine the crash Monday. The plane went down soon after leaving the Fremont County airport about 100 miles south of Denver.
Mayer could not identify the two people killed. He said the plane was experimental but did not say what make it was. It was not immediately known if anyone else was on board.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Department released a statement saying the plane had one engine, but provided no further details.
