VERGENNES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man has died after crashing a single-engine ultralight aircraft during a test flight at the Lowell City Airport.

Bryan Bowker, 67, drove up from Edgewood, New Mexico, to test the aircraft before he purchased it. His first takeoff was successful, but the second time he took off, the aircraft went to the right and crashed, according to authorities on scene.

The crash happened around 11:30 a.m. Sunday at the Lowell City Airport located at 730 Lincoln Lake Avenue, about a mile north from the city of Lowell.
