Deputies Investigating Plane Crash (Aurora)

Marion Co. Sheriff's Office - 02/06/19

Today at 3:35 p.m., deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office were called to the scene of a plane crash at the Aurora Airport.

The initial investigation is showing that a Piper Malibu Mirage was attempting to land when it struck a radio antenna sending the plane into the ground. The pilot and passenger both escaped the crash with what appears to be minor injury.

Deputies will continue their investigation in coordination with the FAA. The Sheriff’s Office will release the name of the pilot once deputies have completed their investigation. That time frame is not yet know.
