Ohio Pilot Dies in Single Plane Crash



The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the pilot of a single-engine plane was killed in a crash shortly after taking off from a small northeast Ohio airport.

Seventy-two-year-old Robert Stuhlmiller of Alliance was pronounced dead at the scene Friday by the Mahoning County coroner’s office.

An OHSHP trooper said Saturday that Stuhlmiller crashed in a field around 6:30 p.m. just a quarter mile from Tri City Airport in Beloit. The trooper says it appears that the plane crashed nose first.

Stuhlmiller was flying his own plane, a 2005 Europa. No one else was onboard. The OHSHP says Stuhlmiller hadn’t filed a flight plan.

Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board began their investigations once they visited the crash site Saturday.
