Aurora Municipal Airport
Residents in west suburban Sugar Grove were surprised to see a Boeing 737 airliner parked on the runway at the Aurora Municipal Airport recently, but the big jet wasn’t there for passenger flights. The plane was being flown by the company Gogo, to test new equipment for in-flight Wi-Fi services.
A small plane went down at the Aurora Municipal Airport Wednesday morning, ending up in a cornfield at the end of a runway.
The pilot who died in a plane crash in Kane County over the weekend had survived two crashes in the past 11 years.
One person died Sunday morning after a plane crashed shortly after takeoff from an airport in far west suburban Sugar Grove.
