Federal Investigators Arrive On Scene Of Fatal Plane Crash

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration arrived at the crash site in the desert north of Grand Junction Sunday to begin its investigation into a fatal plane crash. 58–year–old Richard Kellar was killed when his small aircraft went down shortly after take–off from a Walker Field runway. He was the only person on board the single–engine Bellanca. Initial reports said the plane's engine lost power shortly after becoming airborne, crashing into a ravine about a mile west of the runway. While investigators are at the site further information is not being released surrounding either the investigation or the cause of the crash.
