A small plane crashed into a Minnesota lake on Sunday morning, killing the pilot and injuring a passenger.

Just before 10 a.m. on Sunday a small experimental plane crashed into Upper Whitefish Lake near Brainerd, killing the pilot, a 55-year-old man from Crosslake, The Associated Press said.

The passenger, 61, also from Crosslake, was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, The Associated Press said.

The plane was a fixed-wing single engine Skystar Kitfox 4, Federal Aviation Administration Spokeswoman Elizabeth Cory said, the Star Tribune said.

The plane was submerged about 75 yards offshore, FAA Spokesman Roland Herwig told The Associated Press.

The aircraft was built in 2008, the Star Tribune said.
