Police are identifying the pilot who crashed his plane and died at the Brantford Airport as a 65-year-old John Pearson of Brant County.

Investigators say the OPP were called to the crash scene east of the airport near Colborne St. W just after 11am yesterday.

Pearson was the lone occupant of the aircraft.

The Transportation Safety Board is investigating.

This is the second crash near the Brantford Airport in two weeks. Last week, an experimental aircraft went down in the same area. Two men were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
