A Dambury man was killed over the weekend when his motorized hang glider crashed in Rocky Hill, the Associated Press reports.
Burns says Perrone was trying to land the glider in a field, but it struck a steel cable fence on the side of a dirt road. He was later pronounced dead at an area hospital.
Perrone had a commercial pilot's license and apparently flew the glider, which had a small motor and an enclosed pilot's area, as a hobby, Burns said.
Police and Federal Aviation Administration officials examined the wreckage, but weren't able to immediately determine what caused the accident.
