A 51-year-old Pataskala, Ohio, man piloting a single engine plane was killed after the aircraft crashed shortly after take-off Thursday afternoon. According to 10 TV News, the plane was a small, experimental aircraft that was about the size of a bathtub.
The man took off just before dark from the Newark-Heath Airport and authorities believe a mechanical malfunction of some kind occurred shortly thereafter. Witnesses stated seeing the aircraft spiraling downward out of the sky and hitting a tree as the plane crashed into the backyard of a home, barely missing the structure.
First responders to the scene described the plane as totally demolished, but could see the pilot alive inside. They tried to help the man from the wreckage, but they were unable to free him from the mangled debris. They stayed with him, trying to keep him conscious until paramedics arrived, but was pronounced dead.
Studies have found that the size of an aircraft has direct correlation with its chances of a crash. Numbers provided by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) show, the smaller the plane, the greater the chances of a crash occurring.
