Pilot of an ultra-light plane was killed Wednesday night in crash near Stanley
The pilot of an ultra-light plane was killed last night in a crash in western Wisconsin.
A man from the Chippewa County town of Edson died in the crash, which happened about 8:20 p.m. just west of Stanley.
Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk said the ultra-light went down about 300 yards west of the Ace Ethanol plant, and then hit a garage at a home.
Witnesses there said the craft was flying west when it suddenly nose-dived.
