(July 6, 2007)—The pilot of a single-engine plane died Friday when the plane went down in rural Limestone County.
Authorities used ATVs to reach the crash site.
The plane disappeared from radar around 11:45 a.m. Friday.
The wreckage was found along County Road 633 southwest of Groesbeck.
Officers from the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Public Safety were at the scene.
Maximum Aviation, a Diboll flight school, leased the Socata Trinidad TB-20, which is owned by Southwood Partners, an equipment leasing company.
The person who died wasn’t an employee of either company, according to a press release issued late Friday afternoon.
“My only concern at this time is for the family and friends of the individual killed in the crash,” said Doug Ashburn, co-owner of Maximum Aviation and owner of the plane.
