The Piper Tomahawk belongs to Mazzei Flying Service, a flight school located at the airport. A company official told Action News the pilot is a graduate of the school.

Several witnesses parked across the street from the airport say they heard what sounded like backfires just before the plane fell to the ground. The FAA and the NTSB are investigating the crash.
