AUSTIN (KXAN) — The two men killed in a Kingsland plane crash Sunday afternoon have been identified, according to a press release from Texas Highway Patrol.
The crash happened just before 2:45 p.m. Sunday at the Williams Lakeshore Airstrip at Shirley Williams Airport, just north of Legends Golf Course.
Kingsland residents, 69-year-old Williams Lee Glenn and John Timothy Sharpe were the only occupants of the Experimental Rans S-7 Courier when it crashed and burned. Both Glenn and Sharpe died at the scene.
The single-engine propeller aircraft took off from the River Valley Ranch airstrip in Kingsland before it crashed for unknown reasons.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash.
Less than 24 hours later, another plane crashed in Kerrville, killing all six occupants. Investigations are ongoing in that crash as well.
