A small plane crashed at around 11:45 a.m. Sunday morning at the Jackson County Airport, killing David Rushlow, 50, of Jackson County.
The crash happened in the grassy median between the airport's two runways, about 300 yards from the north end of the runways.
Officials said the plane was a single engine "hobby" type aircraft and was doing test landings and takeoffs when the crash happened. A witness said the plane sputtered and then crashed and burst into flames.
The plane was housed at the Jackson County Airport.
