A single-engine plane crashed near Dallas Executive Airport on July 28. The aircraft, a Piper PA-32, crashed at about 2:45 p.m. off a trail in a wooded area of Boulder Park, about a half-mile south of the Dallas Executive Airport near Pastor Bailey Drive and Red Bird Lane.

The Piper PA-32 is a small plane that can seat six people and a pilot. The plane in Thursday’s crash carried the pilot only, no passengers. The aircraft is small, measuring about 27 feet long with a wingspan of 32 feet.
