One man is dead following the crash of a charter plane on Friday afternoon at Laramie Regional Airport according to airport manager Jack Skinner. No details have been released about the man, although Skinner did confirm that he was not from Laramie. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash.
Skinner reports that the plane was on fire after the crash, which occurred at approximately 2:50 p.m. He said there was a quick response with fire trucks.
Operations at the airport were only slightly delayed through the afternoon as the crash occurred outside of what Skinner called the “airport operations” and “safety area.” The Laramie Regional Airport will not release any further information until the FAA has completed their investigation.
