UPDATE: Pilot killed in EAA crash identified

by

OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - A pilot killed near the EAA AirVenture Show in Oshkosh was identified Friday as 74-year-old Jim Oeffinger of Versailles Kentucky.

His passenger was a 21-year-old woman from suburban Chicago. She was hospitalized in serious condition at last word.

Federal officials said Oeffinger was trying to land his Breezy custom-built aircraft on a runway at Wittman Regional Airport when it bounced, and crashed in a row of trucks -- causing smoke and flames.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating a possible cause.

Oeffinger was a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association, which is holding its annual AirVenture convention through Sunday in Oshkosh.
