Pilot dies in Texas plane crash : Cessna 421




Pilot dies in Texas plane crash, alone on board

WELLS, Texas (AP) - Officials say the pilot of a twin-engine plane died in a fiery East Texas crash during a flight from Houston to Oklahoma.

Department of Public Safety Trooper David Hendry said Tuesday the pilot, whose name wasn't immediately released, was alone on board.

The Federal Aviation Administration says searchers found the Cessna 421 wreckage Monday night in a field near Wells, about 140 miles northeast of Houston.

The plane was en route from West Houston Airport to Tulsa Riverside Airport when contact was lost around 9:30 p.m. Monday amid possible bad weather.

A National Transportation Safety Board spokesman says their investigators arrived Tuesday.
