HONESDALE, Pa. (AP) - The county coroner has identified the pilot killed when his small plane crashed near a northeastern Pennsylvania airport.

The Wayne County coroner says the pilot is 52-year-old Joseph Kinney, of Dingman’s Ferry.

The Federal Aviation Administration spokesman says Kinney’s Morrissey 2150A aircraft crashed just before 6 p.m. Thursday, about a half-mile from Cherry Ridge Airport near Honesdale.

Honesdale is about 100 miles (161 kilometers) northwest of New York City.

An autopsy was expected Friday. The National Transportation Safety Board will be investigating the cause of the crash.
