BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Yellowstone County officials have released the name of a 74-year-old man who died in the crash of an experimental helicopter at Billings Logan International Airport.

Deputy Coroner Rich Hoffman says Robert "Larry" Coons of Billings died Wednesday afternoon of blunt force trauma when his helicopter crashed into a hangar.

Hoffman says it is not believed Coons suffered any medical emergency before the crash.

Airport officials have said nobody witnessed the crash, which was reported at about 12:45 p.m. The pilot wasn't in contact with air traffic control at the time.

It will let me edit the post but not the title. I'll check again though.

They have a updated story. The pilot had a lot of experience though types unknown.

OP, or just call me John
