      ANADARKO, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a west Texas man was killed when the single-engine plane he was piloting crashed near the airport in Anadarko.

      Troopers told our sister station in OKC, KOCO (http://is.gd/GZDoty ), that 62-year-old Robert Glasscock of Lubbock, Texas, died in the crash Tuesday afternoon about 60 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.

      Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford that the plane was a Piper PA-28 and was flying from Crosbyton Municipal Airport in Texas to Anadarko. Crosbyton is about 60 miles east of Lubbock.
