One man dead after plane crashes near Kingman


Authorities say a Nevada man has died after the small plane he was piloting crashed northwest of Kingman. Mohave County Sheriff’s officials say the pilot was the only person aboard the single-engine plane when it went down Saturday afternoon near the Triangle Airpark.

They say the victim died at the scene and was identified the victim Sunday as 73-year-old Richard Dennis Moynihan of Boulder City, Nevada.

Authorities say Moynihan was flying a Van’s RV-7A, which is a kit-built airplane that had its certification issued in February 2019. They say the plane was destroyed in the crash with debris scattered along U.S. 93.
