ANSLEY, Neb. (AP) — Officials in central Nebraska say a pilot has died in a small plane crash in Custer County.
The sheriff’s office says the crash happened Saturday, when the office received a report shortly after 1 p.m. that a single-engine plane had failed to arrive at a Colorado airport as scheduled.
The Custer County Sheriff’s Office say the wreckage of the plane was found several hours later in a pasture southwest of Ansley.
Officials say the body of the plane’s pilot and sole occupant, 74-year-old Keith Walker of Mason City, was found in the wreckage.
