      MGN Online

      A pilot has died in the crash of a small plane as it took off or shortly after taking off from an airport in southeast Iowa.

      Authorities say the pilot was alone in the plane when it crashed a little before noon on Sunday just east of the Fairfield airport.

      The pilot's name hasn't been released. The single-engine plane is owned by a Fairfield man.

      The crash is being investigated.

      The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to be on the scene on Monday.
