Robert Malloy N67WR SE/RG
This airplane had just been restored to flying status after being bought at auction in Winter Haven. Apparently a gusting wind caused him to land in the trees of the golf course next the airport in Sebastian. Here's the report.
The pilot of a small plane that crashed at Hole 6 of the Sebastian Municipal Golf Course was not injured Thursday morning, police said.
The pilot, who police identified as 57-year-old Robert Malloy of Davenport, Iowa, was performing touch-and-go landings from Sebastian Municipal Airport and crashed off-site about 9 a.m., city officials said. There were no passengers in the 1999 Velocity experimental plane, which Malloy owns.
“He said conditions became windy as he was coming in for a landing at Runway 4 and he clipped the trees,” Sebastian Community Development Director Joe Griffin said.
