A 61-year-old man was killed in Wilson County in an ultralight aircraft late Saturday morning.

The accident happened just after 11 a.m. on Edwards Road in Norene, about 40 miles away from Nashville.

Authorities said David Carter’s craft only had one seat and that he was an experienced pilot.

Carter, of Nashville, was also a member of the Middle Tennessee Ultralight Group.

First responders said windy conditions may have been a factor in the deadly crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration also responded to the scene.
