A small plane registered to Fed Ex has crashed south of Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport, killing the pilot.
The accident happened early Tuesday. The pilot, who was not identified, was the only person on board.
Tony Molinaro, spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, says the pilot of the Cessna reported engine trouble shortly after taking off from Mid-Continent Airport. Molinaro says the pilot was trying to return to the airport when the crash occurred about two miles from the airport. He says the plane was headed to Garden City.
FAA records show the plane was registered to Fed Ex Corp. The company did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
