One person died in a plane crash Monday afternoon near the Wellington Aero Club.
The plane is a Sonex, fixed-wing, single-engine amateur-built experimental aircraft, according to Kathleen Bergen, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman.
The small plane crashed around 12:55 p.m. into a lake in the 2900 block of Greenbriar Boulevard.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews removed one person from the cockpit. The person was pronounced dead at the scene, a spokesman said.
That person was the only one in the plane, Bergen said.
The crash location is near the aero club, which is a private airpark community south of Southern Boulevard and northwest of Pierson Road. The location is also near the Wellington Dog Park which is located at 2975 Greenbriar Blvd.
