The first report is in from a weekend plane crash that killed one person and badly injured another. The plane was owned by the Civil Air Patrol, a volunteer organization that undertakes the searcn-and-rescue mission when a plane goes missing. A experienced instructor and a C-A-P member who was working to add an endorsement to his pilot’s certificate were conducting a lesson and had flown the Cessna 182 from the Ankeny airport to a grass strip near North English, in Iowa County. The preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board investigators called to the scene says the plane landed on the small strip, back-taxied to the end and took off again but the pilot lost control trying to avoid powerlines close to the end of the runway. The student was badly injured in the crash, the instructor killed.
