Small plane crashes near Burns Flat, one dead
BURNS FLAT, Okla.– Officials are investigating the crash of a small plane that happened early Saturday morning near the Clinton-Sherman Air Force Base, close to Burns Flat.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol identified the deceased pilot– and only person aboard the small craft– as Scotty Wilson.
Wilson was featured in a segment of NewsChannel4’s Great State in March of 2014, that showcased the building a functional replica of the famous Bugatti 100p.
Wilson was a fighter pilot in the U.S. Airforce when he first heard about the only airplane Etorre Bugatti ever designed and called it “the most historically significant airplane that never flew.”
