A 62-year-old Lubbock man died Tuesday when his airplane crashed near a small Oklahoma town’s airport.

Robert Glasscock, 62, a former local business owner, was the only person aboard the Piper Cherokee which crashed near Anadarko, a town some 60 miles southwest of Oklahoma City, said Lynn Lunsford, a Federal Aviation Administration regional spokesman.

Glasscock had left Crosbyton Municipal Airport Tuesday morning. His flight plan showed his destination to be Anadarko.
Lunsford said Glasscock’s four-seat, single-engine airplane disappeared from radar shortly before 12:15 p.m.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol officers told the Associated Press the airplane burst into flames when it struck the ground.

Officials said he was planning to visit relatives in Oklahoma.

Because the crash resulted in a death, the NTSB will be the lead agency on the investigation.

Agency spokesman Keith Holloway said there were no new details about the crash, adding a preliminary investigation report could be available as early as next week.

According to a commercial aircraft tracking website, Flight Aware, Glasscock took off at 10:07 a.m., and had expected to arrive at Anadarko at 11:42 a.m.

According to Avalanche-Journal files, Glasscock was a widower whose wife Susan died last December. They had two children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Texas Secretary of State records show he was affiliated with a now-defunct business, C&W Restaurant and Fixture Supply.
