West Des Moines police have identified the pilot as 64-year-old David Kenworthy of Des Moines and 30-year-old Adam Kenworthy of New York. No condition update was released.
Two people were injured when a plane crash landed in a Des Moines suburb Thursday.
Police say the two-passenger plane took off from the Des Moines airport just before 8 p.m. and encountered some kind of problem about 10 minutes later that forced the landing in West Des Moines.
West Des Moines police say the 65-year-old pilot was seriously injured and the 30-year-old passenger had moderate injuries. The two, who have not been identified, were taken to the hospital after being pulled
from the biplane by emergency responders.
Police say it appears the pilot was trying to land in a grassy area when the plane crashed. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the FAA will be on the scene investigating.
