WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A twin-engine Cessna 310 crashed near a west Wichita neighborhood Friday, killing the pilot.

Wichita Fire Chief Ron Blackwell says the plane crashed about 4 p.m. in a wooded area behind some homes.

Blackwell says the pilot was the only person on board the plane. He says there was no fire at the crash site and no homes in the area were seriously damaged.

The pilot had taken off from a Wichita airport and then radioed that the plane was experiencing problems. Blackwell says the pilot was told to return to the airport and that is when the plane went down.

The fire chief says the investigation is continuing. The pilot’s identity has not been released. According to tracking site Flightaware.com, it was headed to Centennial Airport in Denver.
