Pilot of Crashed Nebraska Plane Identified

By Omaha Personal Injury Attorney on December 15, 2015

Authorities have identified the pilot who was killed when his small plane crashed. According to a report on WOWT Channel 6, the 65 year old Omaha man had just taken off from Eppley Airfield when he radioed that he was experiencing problems with his plane.

The pilot was attempting to fly back to Eppley when he hit a power line and crashed across the Mississippi River near Council Bluffs, Iowa. The pilot didn’t specify what problems he was experiencing, but witnesses on the ground say the plane, a Piper PA 46 TurboProp, was flying very low. A former firefighter who saw the plane go down checked on the pilot but found no pulse. The crash is currently being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
