A pilot died after a single-engine plane crashed into a large field in Marysville Wednesday evening.
The pilot, identified as 64-year-old Gregory Capes, was the only person on board, according to Marysville police.
The Murphy Moose, a lightweight kit plane, crashed in the 15700 block of 51st Ave. NE.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating. They said the plane was an “experimental amateur-built aircraft.”
It's unclear who the plane was registered to or the flight path of the aircraft.
Witnesses in the area saw a plume of smoke and heavy emergency response, saying the crash happened near the Arlington Municipal Airport.
