Pilot of experimental aircraft dies in Bradford county crash

By

Bradford County Sheriff’s deputies have now determined the identity of a pilot after his plane crashed on Sunday. The victim, Michael Shultz was flying an experimental aircraft, and when he did not return home, his wife drove to the couple’s property in Bradford County where she found the wreck. Bradford County Sheriff’s department Captain Brad Smith says the Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating.

“The FAA did arrive on scene this morning, so they’re conducting their part of the investigation. And the medical examiner’s office removed the body last night and sometime today or tomorrow should be working on an autopsy to help determine the cause of death and time of death.”

The pilot’s body was taken to the medical examiner’s office in Gainesville for the autopsy.
