“The airport in Marion does not have an air traffic control tower,” the FAA said in a statement. “Pilots using the field are expected to announce their intentions on a common radio frequency and to coordinate with one another while on the ground and in the traffic pattern.”
The NTSB is investigating the incident.
This is a developing story.
Rest in peace.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.
