Man Killed in San Antonio, TX, Plane Accident by Stinson Airport

San Antonio, TX -- January 25, 2017, a man was killed as the result of an accident where his personal aircraft crashed near the Stinson Municipal Airport.

San Antonio emergency authorities stated that the aircraft went down in a park about a mile east of the airstrip. The incident occurred around 3:45 p.m.

According to preliminary investigations, a man from California was flying a personal Cirrus SR22 single-engine airplane. As he approached the airport at low altitude, the plane somehow tipped over, and the right wing made contact with the ground.

The wing sheered off, sending the fuselage into the ground, where it slid for some distance before crashing into a group of trees.

The pilot suffered fatal injuries in the crash, and authorities say he died at the scene. He was the only occupant of the vehicle.

At this time, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the accident. They have not yet released details on why the accident occurred.
