The person flying a Cessna 150 which crashed near Mayflower, Arkansas had held a student pilot’s license, but it had expired on June 30th and was not re-issued, according to the FAA.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation. Witnesses told an Arkansas television station that the airplane seemed to lose power shortly after takeoff. An FAA spokesman indicated that they would have the final determination as to whether the pilot was able to legally operate the aircraft. He was the only one on board at the time on the accident.
