Was Attempting To Return To Airport
The pilot of a homebuilt Sonex
single-engine plane (file photo of type, right) was lost Wednesday
morning, when his aircraft came down just north of Jones Field
Airport (F00) in Bonham, TX.
The pilot was identified as Ronnie Wren, 61. Witnesses told FAA
investigators Wren took off to the north, but then made a sharp
right turn in an apparent attempt to return to the field. It was
then the pilot apparently lost control of the plane.
Authorities were notified of the accident around 0700 CDT
Wednesday morning, according to KXII-12.
Officials in Bonham say the accident is the first within the
city limits in at least 15 years.
"When we get the call, we come up and find all the facts first,
then we go out and search for stuff like that," aviation safety
inspector Oscar Thomas said, when asked to comment on a possible
cause of the accident.
FAA officials say an exact cause of the accident should be known
in the next few weeks.
