1 dead in crash of small plane in northeastern Oklahoma

ZENA, Okla. (AP) - A medical missionary from Grove has been identified as the pilot killed in the crash of a small airplane in northeast Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Thursday that 61-year-old Robert Hudson died in the crash near Zena, between Jay and Grove in Delaware County. An OHP report says Hudson was the only person on board the plane.

The OHP has said the plane was found upside down Wednesday in a field west of U.S. 59 and Oklahoma 127.

The OHP report says the aircraft had taken off from a private grass strip when it apparently lost power and Hudson was trying to make an emergency landing when the plane struck a tree.

The OHP says the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Board are investigating the crash.

ZENA, Okla. (AP) - The pilot of a small plane was killed when the aircraft went down in a field near Grand Lake in northeastern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the aircraft was found lying upside down in a field just west of U.S. 59 and Oklahoma 127 near Zena, Oklahoma.

Grand River Dam Authority police were told about 6 p.m. Wednesday that a plane that had taken off from Zena had failed to arrive as scheduled at Grove, Oklahoma. Authority Police Chief Brian Edwards says witnesses reported seeing the aircraft appear to have trouble gaining altitude.
