Small plane crashes near OU Airport, killing pilot

A small plane crashed near Albany early Saturday evening, killing the pilot, according to official reports. He apparently was alone in the plane.

» Aircraft Accidents | Monday, April 7, 2014 • Athens News
In a preliminary report issued Saturday night, the Ohio State Highway Patrol identified the pilot as Charles W. Wagner, 73, of Athens County. He crashed the single-engine 1972 Bellanca Super Viking that he was flying en route to the nearby OU Airport, the report said.
 
According to online records, a similar plane – same model, same year – was registered to a Charles Wagner of Fleming Road in Glouster.
 
Photos of the crash site – southwest of Albany near where U.S. Rt. 50 veers west toward McArthur from Ohio Rt. 32 – show a badly damaged small plane upside-down on the ground, with first responders on the scene.
 
A report released at 8:45 p.m. by the Athens County Public Information Officer Network said the county 9-1-1 Emergency Communications Center "received a 9-1-1 call at 6:35 p.m. reporting a plane crash near 3315 U.S. Rt. 50, near Ohio University's Gordon K Bush airport."
 
The Albany Area Volunteer Fire Department and Athens County Emergency Medical Services were dispatched to the scene, the report said, adding: "First responders found a small four-person, single-engine aircraft. The aircraft had a single occupant who was the pilot and was declared dead at the scene."
 
The report said the Ohio State Highway Patrol was on scene performing an initial aircraft crash investigation. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had been notified, and a FFA crash investigation "go team" dispatched to the scene. The National Transportation Safety Board also will be involved in the investigation.
