Van's RV-4: Neighbors share details on plane crash - Elbert County, Colorado

A small private plane crashed while attempting to land this afternoon on County Road 73 & Highway 94.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Mike Fergus says an RV-4 airplane crashed in the rural county Saturday afternoon, and the pilot was the only one on board. He said the pilot was conscious when emergency crews arrived.

Neighbors say the pilot was a retired commercial airline pilot who owned the land where the plane went down. He was airlifted for medical treatment but his injuries are not life threatening.
