UPDATE: DAYTON, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- According to preliminary information from FAA Public Affairs Manager Ian Gregor, an airborne pilot spotted the wreckage of a single-engine, homebuilt BD-4 a half-mile west of the Dayton Valley Airpark around 2:40 p.m. Tuesday. The aircraft was discovered upside down and the time of the crash is unknown.

Gregor tells News 4 Lyon County Sheriff’s deputies at the scene are reporting there was one person on board who was killed. The FAA and NTSB will investigate this accident with the NTSB taking the lead in the investigation. Two FAA inspectors are now en route to the crash site.
