Steve Appleton, the chief operating officer and chairman of Micron, died Friday morning in a small plane crash in Boise, the company said. He was 51.
A small experimental plane piloted by the chief executive and chairman of Micron Technology Inc. crashed after take-off Friday at the Boise airport, killing the head of the Idaho memory chip maker who survived a similar crash eight years ago.
The head of memory chip maker Micron, long known for taking risks in stunt piloting, died Friday when a small experimental plane he was piloting steeply banked, stalled and crashed near an Idaho runway.
She said Appleton's first take-off ended abruptly _ witnesses said the plane only got about 5 feet off the ground _ when he landed and returned to a hangar for about five minutes.
Keliher said investigators planned to look for any evidence of equipment failure or other problems.
