Two Killed in Levelland Plane Crash

Federal Aviation investigators are on their way to the scene of a deadly plane crash in Levelland.

The plane went down just after 6:30 p.m. Monday near the Levelland airport. 63-year-old Dennis Michaels of Lubbock and 24-year-old Anad Paul Quadros of India were killed upon impact. Michaels was a flight instructor and Quadros was a flight student.

Witnesses tell NewsChannel 11 Michaels flew out of the Levelland airport frequently but added the winds were strong when the plane went down. 13-year-old Bo Armes was playing at the park when he saw the plane go down. "I turned to talk to my friend and heard a boom and the plane was rolling," he said.

Jeff Pate was eating dinner with his family when the entire family saw the tragedy. "My grandson looked up and put his hand out and said a plane just crashed. My wife called 9-1-1 but police were here within one to two minutes," he said. 

FAA investigators are taking over the investigation and will try and determine a cause. This is the second plane crash in Levelland this month.  Two weeks ago, a student pilot suffered minor injuries when landing gear on a Cessna 150 broke upon landing and flipped the plane upside down.
