Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer identified the man killed in a plane crash this morning as George V. McHenry, Jr., 68, of Pueblo.
Emergency crews responded to the crash at the Pueblo Memorial Airport at 8:20 a.m.
Officials said McHenry was flying a small experimental airplane and crashed while trying to land.
He was a well-known and respected pilot in Pueblo, officials said.
Kramer said the accident is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.
An autopsy will be performed Monday.
The crash forced the Mitt Romney presidential campaign to cancel its rally that was scheduled near the airport.
