Georgetown pilot killed
A Georgetown man was killed Saturday evening, April 12, when the ultralight aircraft he was flying apparently lost a wing and crashed into trees in Scott County.
Don Collins Jr., deputy coroner in Scott County, said Alfred D. Hall, 50, was killed on impact about 6:15 Saturday night. Hall’s ultralight, which had nylon wings and may have been home-built, crashed near a private lake about four miles southwest of the Scott County Airport. A preliminary autopsy report by the Jefferson County (Ky.) Medical Examiner’s office in Louisville said Hall died from multiple blunt-force injuries.
Collins said landowners in the area heard a ‘pop’ or crack and one witness saw a wing fall from the plane.
The Indiana State Police and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the incident.
Hall was an import auto mechanic at Stein Auto in Louisville, and he frequently went flying from the grass strip in Scott County.
Funeral: Thursday, April 17, at Highlands Funeral Home in Louisville at 3331 Taylorsville Road near Bowman Field.
Hall is survived by a brother, Craig Atherton of Louisville, and two sisters, Laura Freeman of California and Donna Deesel Dallenback of Louisville.
Burial will be at Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville.
