One dead in AR plane crash

April 20, 2011, 05:50 am

An aircraft that crashed in Southwest Arkansas on Friday, April 15 resulted in the death of pilot Tim Stanley, according to KSLA-TV news.

The identity of the pilot was just recently released. However, the cause of the crash remains unknown. According to the source, the Federal Aviation Administration says the aircraft had come from J. Lynn Helms Sevier County Airport and had likely made the stop to wait out the severe weather that was part of the recent rash of storms affecting a number of states.

However, the aircraft did not make it very far. The source says the plane crashed shortly after takeoff from the Sevier County airport. Its final resting place was a ditch next to Runway 26. According to preliminary reports by the National Safety Transportation Board, a witness claims to have heard sounds coming from the aircraft that may have signified engine problems, and the plane appeared to be attempting to return to the airport.

Stanley was the only person on board the aircraft at the time of the crash. The source says the Beechcraft BE-55 twin-engine aircraft was registered to Rose Resources Oil & Gas, Inc. in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which was later discovered to be Stanley's company.

As some self-employed pilots may not have life insurance provided through their jobs and might now have personal life insurance policies either, obtaining pilot life insurance may be an invaluable precaution in the event of a fatal accident.
