Default RV-6 Down near Yuma

Not a lot of details. Apparently left Brown field in San Diego enroute to Nogales Az

DATELAND, AZ ó A pilot and a passenger are dead after a plane crashed Friday in southwestern Arizona.

The Yuma County Sheriff's Office says just before 2 p.m. Friday, a DPS trooper saw a large plume of smoke while patrolling Spot Road and Interstate 8 near Dateland, Arizona.

The trooper arrived at the scene and found a small aircraft in the desert fully engulfed in flames.

Officials were called to the scene, where they located a pilot and passenger who were pronounced dead.

The aircraft has been identified as a Van's RV-6 two-seater plane.

The two victims have not yet been identified. The cause of the crash is not yet known.
