Two Killed In P-51 Crash

Two people have been killed in a plane crash that happened on Sunday morning in Cummings, Kansas.

The airplane had reportedly been flying for only 10 or 15 minutes before the crash.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says Root was the manager of Atchison's Amelia Earhart Airport. Lenoch was 64 and passenger Root was 34.

The pilot was in town to fly during Saturday's festival. Ironically, when the Mustang was being transported away from the scene on a trailer following the crash, its right wingtip struck a road sign, causing further damage. "I can't speculate. It appears the plane was flying northwest when it crashed". The impact left a large debris field in its wake.

Thapa had reprimanded the soldier for using his mobile phone while on duty in a sensitive area, reported Hindustan Times . Shikhar Thapa belonged to the Indian army's elite counter-insurgency unit deployed in the valley, it said.

Only two people were on board the plane when it crashed. In several Facebook posts over the years, Lenoch said that he had flown in the Chicago Air & Water Show. The plane that crashed was believed to be a P-51 Mustang - named the "Baby-Duck" - that flew along the Missouri River in the air show at the Amelia Earhart Festival Saturday evening, authorities said.

Lenoch was an experienced demonstration, instructor and commercial pilot who began flying in 1970 when he was 17 years old. According to the Warbird Heritage Foundation Database, it flew during WWII and has been used as a stunt plane since 2012. Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration were en route to the site. She worked at Amelia Earhart Airport as a fixed-base operator who organized training sessions for aspiring pilots.

No residents in the area of the crash were injured, Laurie said.
