Pilot on flight from Florida dies in crash in SC

Jul 20, 2010 6:35:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities are trying to confirm the identity of the pilot of a single-engine plane that crashed near the South Carolina coast on a flight from Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane came down about 100 yards from the runway at the East Cooper Regional Airport in Mount Pleasant about 2 p.m. Monday.

Charleston County Coroner Rae Wooten told The Post and Courier of Charleston her office is working to confirm the pilot's identity.

The FAA says the plane took off from Merritt Island, Fla., about noon, heading for Mount Pleasant.

The pilot was alone and had radioed the tower he had the airport in sight just before the crash.
