The highway patrol says the aircraft apparently lost power and

crashed about 300 feet east of the runway.

after Tuesday’s crash but was later transferred to a hospital in

Amarillo, Texas. The highway patrol says the pilot suffered arm and

internal injuries.

The passenger was taken to Amarillo with leg and internal

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says a

4-seat, low-wing Mooney had just left the airport in Hooker when it

crashed in a field northeast of Guymon about 3:20 p.m. Tuesday.

Lunsford said emergency personnel reported that the occupants
