AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Investigators say a North Texas pilot has been killed in the crash of a twin-engine plane while trying to land at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

Austin police on Thursday identified the victim as 55-year-old David S. Anderson of Dallas.

The Piper Aerostar went down Wednesday afternoon in a city-owned field north of the airport.

Officials are trying to determine what caused the crash that sparked a brush fire. Authorities say Anderson did not indicate any trouble with the aircraft before the crash on a flight from Dallas.
