The pilot of a plane that took off from Massachusetts was found dead Thursday in Pittsford, Vt., one day after his plane was first reported missing, Vermont State Police said.
Norman L. Baker, 89, took off from Pittsfield Municipal Airport in Massachusetts around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and was scheduled to land two hours later at Burlington International Airport, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
No one else was on board the aircraft, a 1966 Cessna that can carry up to four passengers.
Pittsford police first received a call reporting that an aircraft was flying low in the area of Sugar Hollow Road Wednesday around 5 p.m., State Police said. Pittsford is 60 miles south of Burlington.
The caller heard a loud noise and was afraid the plane had crashed, but when police investigated with the help of the FAA, Vermont Civil Air Patrol, and the Rutland Regional Airport, they found no signs of an accident.
