The Federal Aviation Administration has confirmed that two fatalities resulted following a Saturday plane crash near the Kerrville airport.  

According to Kerrville Fire Department, KFD received a call on Saturday, June 25, at roughly 6:30 p.m. from witnesses describing a small plane crashing into a field just west of the airport near Peterson Farm Road.  KFD was informed at the time of the first 911 call that the crash had caused a fast-moving grass fire at the scene of the plane’s impact.

The FAA has since confirmed that a single-engine Mooney M20P crashed into a nearby field very soon after departing from the Kerrville Municipal Airport/ Louise Kerrville Schreiner Field.  KFD received assistance in extinguishing the resulting fires from the Center Point and Turtle Creek volunteer fire departments.

According to KFD Chief Eric Maloney there was no structural damage reported from the crash but five acres burned before the fire was completely put out.  Kerr County officials worked alongside the Department of Public Safety in extricating both victims from the wreckage;  the victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

The identities of the victims have not yet been released, but a social media post from the Stephenville Texas Area Pilots and Aviation Enthusiasts positively identified one of the victims as being Greg Thompson.  Thompson is registered as the owner of the plane that crashed in Kerrville on Saturday.

The National Transportation Safety Board is expected to release their preliminary report into the investigation of this incident within the next two weeks.  A final report into their findings of the crash should be released within 12-18 months.
