This is the second fatality that has been reported to have occurred in an aircraft in the state of Arizona within the past week. On Friday, December 8, officials from Pinal County reacted to a plane crash that took place in Eloy.

Around 1:30 p.m., the event that took place in Eloy took place in the Toltec neighborhood, which is located northeast of Frontier Street and Estrella Road.

According to reports, the Skystar Kitfox Series 5 aircraft had encountered an accident just a few minutes after it had taken off from Eloy Municipal Airport.

In accordance with the findings of the investigation, the pilot, who has been named as Kenneth Szeluga, a resident of Tucson, had arrived in Eloy earlier that day from Tucson and was on his way back home when the plane crashed.

At this time, it is not clear what led to the incident. In addition, the authorities have stated that Szeluga was the sole individual who was present on board the experimental single-engine plane at the time of the accident.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board, both events are currently being examined by their respective agencies.
