A pilot who was killed in a Sunday afternoon plane crash has been identified as Henry Levin, 80, of Medford, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.

Levin was the sole occupant of the plane.

The plane crashed in the backyard of a residence after hitting the tops of several trees while attempting to land at the Beagle Sky Ranch Airport in White City.

The crash ignited a small grass fire, which was quickly extinguished by residents and Oregon Department of Forestry personnel, the sheriff’s office said.

Federal authorities will investigate the crash.
