The pilot killed in Saturday's plane crash at Pueblo Memorial Airport has been identified.

Forty-one year-old Timothy Nelson was killed instantly when his plane veered sharply to the left after takeoff and nose-dived just east of the runway.

Nelson was flying an HA-200. About 200 of them were built and only about 15 are still considered airworthy.

FAA investigators are looking into the cause of the crash but have ruled out bad weather.

Nelson's fiancée was on the ground taking photos when the crash happened. No comment yet from her.
