A 31 year old pilot, Aaron Green of Oregon, was killed in a plane crash around 1:00 pm Tuesday.  The plane went down in a peanut field adjacent to Highway 310 and Carter Mill Road. Sheriff Deputy Rick Ashley was one of the first on scene and minutes later called for the coroner.

Green was only a week away from completing training at Ag-Flight Training School. "He was a good boy. We've never had any trouble with him. I don't know why he was over this way." stated Billy Howell, owner of Ag-Flight.

According to Billy Howell, Green was practicing and was suppose to drop his load and return to the terminal.

Decatur County Fire and Rescue, Sheriff's Deputies, and EMS set up a command center close by the crashed plane.  Chief Charlie McCann stated, that as of Tuesday afternoon, the FAA had been notified and are on their way to investigate the fatal crash.

Aaron Green is survived by his grandfathers, brother, sister, fiance, and daughter. The crop-dusting pilot was raised in California, lived in Las Vegas and then in Oregon.  Aaron's tragic fate was the same suffered by his father, Robert Green, who died about 15 years ago in a plane crash in California.
