Waukesha, Wisconsin (CBS 58) – Federal investigators are investigating the cause of the crash of a small plane in Waukesha on Tuesday, October 12, causing the deaths of two people on board.

It happened around 9:30 in the morning, near Highway 164 and Dr. Red Wing.

On Tuesday morning, the single-engine Glastar took off from Timmerman Airport to Salina, Kansas. The family said that the owner, 74-year-old Randy Reimer, built it himself.

Only 11 minutes after the flight, the control tower in Milwaukee notified Waukesha County that they had lost contact with the plane.

At this moment, neighbors along Red Wing Drive heard a loud noise.

Neighbor Bruce Rahlf said: “We first heard this harsh whirling sound, and then there was a loud noise. To me, it sounded like a car accident, a truck hitting a tree or something. .”

Neighbor David Eichel said: “With a bang, it was covered with a metal. It immediately reminded me if anyone owns some kind of flatbed truck and they really slammed the metal door on the back.”

Eichel took us to his neighbor’s house. The plane nearly hit it dangerously and cut down a tree in their front yard.

“This was a complete surprise to me. Wow! This explains the damage to the fuselage here. If the plane enters one of the houses, the situation will be worse. Fortunately, this did not happen,” Eichel Say.

The delegates saturated the area and positioned the aircraft in a wooded area. Two passengers on the plane were pronounced dead at the scene.

The family said that Randy Reimer and his wife Susie celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in June.

They attended the wedding in the city and then went home. Both of them are remembered by the neighbors here, and they are very grateful to the pilots for everything they have done to avoid crashing into these houses.

No other citizens in the area were injured.

“Fly another 20 feet and he will hit the house. I don’t know what the pilot wants to do. If he tries to land the plane in the field, please stay away from the house,” Ralph said.

The family said flying is Randy Reimer’s hobby. They don’t know what went wrong.

On Wednesday, the National Transportation Safety Board will send representatives to the area to screen the wreckage and look for clues about what happened.
