An investigation is underway after a light plane has crashed into a building at a small airport south of metro Phoenix in the community of Maricopa.

A pilot avoided life-threatening injuries when his small, homemade aircraft crashed in northern Arizona.

A release from the Mohave County Sheriff's office identified the woman killed in the crash of a small plane near Kingman as 38-year-old Heidi Sue Dowland of Prescott Valley.
