A north-central Iowa man has died in a plane crash in New Mexico. Family members confirm that 52-year-old Kevin Burrs of Corwith was a passenger in the small plane that crashed Sunday morning near the Los Alamos Airport.
Burrs and the pilot, Mike Fjetland of Harmony, Minnesota, left the Algona Airport last week on a vacation. Fjetland was injured in the crash, but there’s no word on his condition. Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the cause of the crash.
