Deputies: One killed after plane crashes on Whidbey Island

ISLAND COUNTY, Wash. -- A pilot died after a plane crashed Saturday morning in a wooded area just off the Porter Field runway near Langley, according to South Whidbey  Fire/EMS.

The crash was first reported just after 11 a.m., and a 3-mile radius of airspace surrounding the airport was closed.

Island County sheriff's officials said the pilot and one passenger were on board. The pilot, who was flying an experimental aircraft, died in the crash.
