A small plane crashed into Lake Lewisville on Thursday afternoon and flipped upside down, killing a female passenger and seriously injuring the pilot.
The Colony Fire Department Capt. Kenny Adamcik on Friday said crews located the woman's body in the float plane around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The single-engine plane, a 1983 Maule, is known as a float plane. It is capable of landing on water.
Witnesses said the plane had no obvious problems while they watched it fly around the lake before it crashed.
The plane was registered to a Dallas man. Nobody answered the door at his townhouse late Thursday.
Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the crash Thursday.
The crash happened apparently as the pilot was trying to land on the lake, witnesses said.
One possible cause focused on whether the pilot mistakenly lowered the landing gear.
The wheels should never be down for a water landing, experts said, but the wheels on this plane were clearly lowered.
