Pilot involved in crash dies

There is more information in the plane crash that killed a Burgaw man. 80-year old Glenn Moore was flying his single engine plane that he built around one o'clock Thursday afternoon. The plane went down just off John Humphrey Road, not far from Stag Air Park where witnesses say Moore may have been trying to land. Moore is a mechanical engineer. His wife tells us he had been flying for the past 55 years. The National Transportation Safety Board is now heading the investigation. Mr. Moore is survived by his wife Catherine, 5 children, 6 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild.

tg2104 As a former neighbor

tg2104 As a former neighbor of the Moore,s(I was about 5 or 6) I would like to pass on my condolences to the family. I remember that Mr.Moore built his first airplane in our old garage and the family was always very nice to our family and we stayed friends for many years until we moved out of the area. Again, my family and I send our sincerist condolences to the Moore family.
