1 dead in crash of civilian plane on AF range

YUMA, Ariz. — The Yuma County sheriff’s office says one person has been
found dead after a small civilian plane crashed on a military bombing range in
southwestern Arizona.

The single-engine plane was found by U.S. Border Patrol agents Wednesday
morning about 15 miles south of Interstate 8 and 50 miles southeast of Yuma on
the Air Force’s Barry Goldwater bombing range.

The sheriff’s office was withholding the name of the person killed until next
of kin are notified.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says searchers had been
looking for a Piper Cherokee that took off from Tucson on Nov. 23. The pilot’s
husband reported her missing and a search was launched.
