LEWISTOWN — A single-engine airplane crashed near the Russian Flat airstrip in the Lewis and Clark National Forest, killing the pilot.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer says the Cessna 150 left Bozeman at 12:36 p.m. Monday with one person aboard and crashed about an hour later.

Judith Basin County Coroner Dick Brown says no one witnessed the crash, which happened about 30 miles southwest of Stanford. Brown said he expected to release the pilot's name Tuesday afternoon.

The aircraft was registered to Cow Dog Flyers LLC of Bozeman.
