45 year old Craig Ewing was flying from suburban Chicago to Hastings. He was flying a Revo Light Sport Aircraft. He went down near 111th and 68th street.
Isaac Flemming heard and saw the accident. He said the engine sputtered, then there was a loud noise, and he saw the planes wing fall out of the clouds.
Investigators will try to learn how the wing became detached from the rest of the aircraft.
