2 men die in plane crash in SE Wisconsin

Posted:

VILLAGE OF BRISTOL, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities in southeast Wisconsin say two men who were on their way to the Experimental Aircraft Association convention in Oshkosh have died in a plane crash.

The Kenosha County Sheriff's Office was contacted Sunday morning by Winnebago County authorities about an overdue plane.

The Zenith CH601XL airplane was last known to be on its way to the air show and was about 20 hours overdue.

Deputies and the Wisconsin Civil Air Patrol began searching for the plane. The Civil Air Patrol found the crashed plane around 12:30 p.m. in a grassy field several yards south of a home.

Two men were found dead in the plane. No one on the ground was hurt, and no buildings were damaged.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.
