On Saturday, April 1, at about noon, the Cochise County Sheriff's Office was advised of a “plane crash” at the Cochise County Airport, Carol Capas, spokeswoman for the sheriff's office, said.

Sheriff's deputies responded, along with Willcox Fire Department, and located a single-engine airplane that appeared to have significant damage. The 55-year-old pilot and sole occupant received a head injury on impact but refused transport to a hospital, said Capas.

The initial information received indicates that the aircraft took off from Lordsburg Municipal Airport, New Mexico,  enroute to Casa Grande Municipal Airport, Arizona. 

The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified and will continue the investigation.

This is the second hard landing in the Willcox area in less than a month. The other was between Bowie and San Simon. There were no injuries.
