CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Police in Conway say a Cabot man was killed when the ultralight aircraft he was piloting crashed at the Conway airport.

Police spokeswoman LaTresha Woodruff says 64-year-old Adrian Clark died at a Little Rock hospital where he was taken after the crash about noon Monday.

Woodruff says Clark was piloting an ultralight trike, which is similar to a glider. Woodruff says witnesses told police that the aircraft reached an altitude of about 30 feet, then nose-dived into the ground.

Woodruff says the Federal Aviation Administration considers the aircraft unregistered and experimental and will not investigate the crash.
