KYLERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Police and the Federal Aviation Administration were investigating after an 83-year-old pilot was killed when his ultra-light plane crashed in central Pennsylvania.

State police say Blair Murray, of Kylerstown, died in the crash about 6:40 p.m. Monday.

A witness says Murray loved to fly plans but appeared to be flying at an odd angle before the plane came down on Rolling Stone Road in Cooper Township, Clearfield County. That’s about 120 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Nobody else was hurt.

The plane crashed near the pilot’s private runway.

Clearfield County Coroner Mike Morris says Murray was experienced, so it’s unlikely that pilot error caused the crash.

An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
