Jackson resident and aviation enthusiast Lowell Peterson has died following a plane crash. He was 74.

Peterson and longtime friend Jack Mehner were hospitalized Tuesday after a plane they were flying flipped at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport.

Cape Girardeau Police Department public-information officer Rick Schmidt had confirmed Peterson and Lowell were the only "two souls on board" the plane at the time of the crash.

Authorities had not said who was piloting the plane, but both men had long experience as pilots. Both had joined the Cape Girardeau Pilots' Club and had years of piloting experience, according to Southeast Missourian archives.

Last year, the FAA designated Mehner a "Master Pilot" for having exhibited flying skill for the past 50 years. He told the Southeast Missourian in an article recognizing his achievement he and Peterson often enjoyed flying an airplane they had built together in Peterson's garage, among other planes.

Peterson was active in the community. He had served as past-president of Rotary in Cape Girardeau, participated in the annual Soap Box Derby, and had been executive director of Habitat for Humanity.

He and his wife Laurie joined Peace Corps after his retirement, and were stationed in Uzbekistan.

His visitation will be from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Cape Girardeau. Funeral service will follow at 11 a.m. at the church.

Burial will take place at a later date in Minnesota.

Mehner had successful surgery Wednesday morning for a neck injury he sustained, according to a message put out on behalf of his family by the Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce. Mehner's son John Mehner is the president and CEO of the chamber.

Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Abnormal runway contact
Injuries: 9 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 135: Air Taxi & Commuter - Scheduled

According to the flight crew, the instrument approach was flown above the glide slope in anticipation of mechanical turbulence. As the airplane descended through 500 ft, the pilot monitoring notified the pilot flying, that the airplane was high on the approach. The airplane continued the approach above the glide slope and the landing flare was conducted too high, which resulted in an excessive sink rate. The pilot flying attempted to arrest the sink rate but was unable, and the airplane landed harder than expected, striking the tail, which resulted in substantial damage to the lower aft fuselage.

With oil spewing across the windshield of his plane, a pilot managed to make a hard landing along a patch of grass off State Road 407 in Titusville Monday morning. 

Two passengers, the pilot and a student pilot, were aboard the aircraft, owned by L3 Airline Academy in Sanford, but were not injured. The aircraft was en route back to Sanford from Fort Pierce. 

The emergency landing took place about 11:20 a.m. Monday, on the narrow strip of grass between State Road 407 and a murky, brown canal just west of Interstate 95. 

L3 Airline Academy released the following statement to FLORIDA TODAY Monday:

“We can confirm that there was an operational incident on a training flight from our Florida Airline Academy this morning, which led to a precautionary landing taking place on the State Road 407. There were no injuries and we appreciate the support of the first responders and relevant authorities in this matter." 

Lt. Channing Taylor with Florida Highway Patrol said the pilot along with a student pilot on board made an emergency landing on State Road 407.

"They were able to get the aircraft down without hitting anything," he said. "They were basically flying blind with all the oil that sprayed up on the windscreen." 

Removing the airplane and the 100 gallons of fuel inside were among the challenges as crews worked to remove the plane throughout the day Monday. 

The pilot of the plane, which had flown earlier to Fort Pierce for a touch-and-go before attempting to return to Sanford, was trying to land at Space Coast Regional Airport off Golden Knight Boulevard. The pilot reported the aircraft was showing low oil pressure, prompting the emergency measures. 

Fire crews and police were at the site. Florida Highway Patrol troopers are conducting an investigation. The names of the pilot and passenger were not released.
