FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say 76-year-old Homer “Mac” McClure out of Mesa was killed when his twin-engine plane crashed in the woods near Flagstaff.
 
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says preliminary information indicates the plane crashed after taking off from the Flagstaff airport, and Wiltenmuth says the crash site is approximately five miles southwest of the airport.
 
The Sheriff's Office says authorities found the crash site near State 89A after residents in subdivisions south of Flagstaff reported hearing a loud crash.
