February 26, 2015 – TEXAS, UNITED STATES
– San Antonio firefighters and first responders located an airplane debris field near where a small plane crash was reported west of San Antonio in Government Canyon Wednesday.

According to firefighters, the call came in from a cell phone from someone in the area around 4:30 p.m.

SAFD said there were no possible survivors. They could not confirm how many people were on board but did say there was at least one person, a pilot. Officials said they made contact with the pilot’s wife.

According to “FlightAware,” a website that tracks flight plans and airplane registration information, the registered owner of the plane is Thomas Baber of Helotes. It is not confirmed whether or not Baber was the pilot on board.

At least one person was killed in the crash of a World War II-style aircraft that crashed near San Antonio in a large wooded area
owned by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

Wesley Snapp lives approximately 3 to 4 miles away and saw the plane just before it went down.

“I didn’t actually see or witness the plane go down, but it was basically down in a dive,” said Snapp.

Snapp said typically planes in the area don’t travel as low as what he saw. Snapp said he initially thought the plane was “being reckless.”
