Plane wreck, body discovered on ranch
A Weatherford man was found dead Sunday morning inside the wreckage of a single-engine plane on Black Diamond H Ranch northwest of Granbury.
Officials believe the crash happened on Saturday, when the pilot filed a flight plan from Mineral Wells to Granbury.
The body was taken to the Tarrant County medical examiner for identification.
The wreckage was discovered by a passerby on one of the ranch roads, according to the highway patrol. The wreck was three miles northwest of the Granbury Regional Airport and north of FM 4 and west of FM 2580 (Tin Top Highway).
The highway patrol advised the Federal Aviation Agency of the wreck. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating with the NTSB leading the investigation.
