ANADARKO, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a west Texas man was killed when the single-engine plane he was piloting crashed near the airport in Anadarko.
Troopers told KOCO TV that 62-year-old Robert Glasscock of Lubbock, Texas, died in the crash Tuesday afternoon about 60 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford said the plane was a Piper PA-28 and was flying from Crosbyton Municipal Airport in Texas to Anadarko. Crosbyton is about 60 miles east of Lubbock.
Lunsford says the plane burned on impact and that the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
