Pilot Killed in Kansas Plane Crash

KSAL StaffJuly 17, 2016

Authorities have identified a 61-year-old man killed when the gyrocopter he was in crashed in southern Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says James L. Toevs, of Whitewater, was flying the gyrocopter alone when it crashed in a rural area outside Whitewater on Friday evening.

A gyrocopter is a small aircraft with a propeller on its top for lift and on its rear for propulsion.

A flight log shows that the aircraft was viewed “making a steep climb” before it pitched over and crashed.
