BRYAN PLANE CRASH CLAIMS MICHIGAN MAN’S LIFE

Since 1982, seven planes have crashed in the Bryan area. One more went down over the week­end.

A Michi­gan man’s plane crashed Sat­ur­day morn­ing just north of Bryan.

The pilot, 62 year old Leslie Dean of Ann Arbor died Sat­ur­day after­noon at Mercy St. Vin­cent Med­ical Cen­ter in Toledo where he was taken fol­low­ing the crash. His pas­sen­ger, 51 year old Kent Hyne, also of Ann Arbor, was admit­ted to St. Vincent’s.

Police say a plane enthu­si­ast group met Sat­ur­day morn­ing for a fly-in at the Bryan Aero Park. That’s where Dean’s 2010 home made single-engine air­craft was attempt­ing to land at approx­i­mately 8:30 a.m. when another air­craft was also attempt­ing to land from the oppo­site direc­tion.

The pilots saw each other and at the last sec­ond, both aborted their land­ings, Dean’s plane lost power and crashed into a corn­field. The other plane landed safely.
