Default RV-6A down in Ross County, Ohio

I didn't see this posted yet, so thought i'd pass it on. Condolences to any friends or family here who knew the pilot (I've removed the name below but it's on the linked page if anyone feels they need it).

"Authorities say one man was killed in a small aircraft crash near a high school in Ross County.

According to the Ross County Sheriff's Office, spectators at a track and field meet at Southeastern Local High School reported the crash around 12:45pm. Witnesses told investigators they heard the plane's engine cut out and then saw the plane crash.

Investigators say the pilot, identified as 90-year-old ******, of Waverly, Ohio, was the only person on board at the time of the crash. He died on impact.

The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed the plane was a Van's RV-6A.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation."
