Plane crash

The Pipistrel Alpha Trainer light sport aircraft Lelon Lewis crashed in a field near the Salida Airport at Harriet Alexander Field on May 29, 2019. Lewis was killed April 3 when his plane crashed in a rugged area northwest of Deckers.

The same man who crashed in an alfalfa field near Salida in 2019, is dead after the plane he was flying Saturday crashed in a rugged area northwest of Deckers.

CBS News 4 in Denver reported that Lelon Lewis, 66, of Lakewood, was reported missing about 8 p.m. Saturday, and subsequently found Sunday when another craft flying overhead saw his plane.
