PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) -- Federal investigators are trying to determine the cause of a small plane crash at the Pueblo airport that prompted the cancellation of a campaign visit by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The experimental plane crashed while landing at Pueblo Memorial Airport on Sunday, killing the pilot, the only person on board.

Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer identified the pilot as 68-year-old George McHenry, Jr., of Pueblo.

Romney was set to visit the nearby Weisbrod Aircraft Museum on Sunday afternoon. The campaign has not announced whether the rally will be rescheduled.
