(AP) DENVER - A man killed in a small plane crash east of Denver Wednesday has been identified as a retired British Royal Air Force pilot.

The Denver Post reports that Brian North, of Parker, was flying a replica of the World War I era biplane called a Gipsy Moth when the plane crashed and caught fire near the Front Range Airport in Adams County ( http://bit.ly/WCb6eK).

An airport official says North was in his 70s but didn’t have an exact age.

The plane was a replica of an RAF SE5a. The airport official says North had the parts of the replica plane shipped from England and assembled the plane made largely of fabric and wood struts himself.

North was the only person on board.
