HESPERIA – The man killed in a hobby plane crash on Tuesday morning has been identified by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department as a Hesperia resident.
Robert Alexander, 55, was the sole pilot of a Quickstar MXL II, an ultra light sports aircraft.
The collision occurred at around 10:00 a.m. just west of the Hesperia Airport on Santa Fe Avenue. “After taxing down the Hesperia Airport runway in Hesperia, he became airborne for a short period of time before going into an aerodynamic stall, and collided in a field, north of the airport,” Sheriff’s officials said in a news release.
Alexander was found in the wreckage and was pronounced dead at the scene. Hazmat was called in to assist due to a small fuel leak from the small 2-seat aircraft.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) the assumed the investigation.
