One person died today in a plane crash near the Farm Progress show in Boone County. Boone County Sheriff Ron Fehr says they received the report of the crash at 9:22 this morning.
The plane crashed in a field north of the farm progress show just after taking off from the Boone Airport. The plane was towing an advertising banner for a farm show vender. Sheriff Fehr says witnesses reported there was some sort of problem with the banner.
F.A.A. spokeswoman Elizabeth Isham Cory says the National Transportation Safety Board is now handling the investigation. She says the plane was registered to Drake Aerial Enterprises in Geneo, Ohio.
