HAZARD, Kentucky — The Federal Aviation Administration says the small plane that crashed in Perry County on Thursday was coming from Grovetown, Georgia.
The plane's destination was Hazard. It crashed into trees near a rural road outside of Hazard at about 7 p.m. on Thursday. The accident site is about two miles from Hazard's Wendell Ford Airport.
The pilot was the only person on board and died in the crash of the single engine Grumman AA5 aircraft.
The National Transportation Safety Board is in charge of the investigation and will determine the likely cause. The agency is expected to release preliminary findings in about 10 days.
