PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon Department of Aviation says an Oregon pilot who died in a plane crash in Washington was a passionate advocate for pilots and airports and played a significant role in Oregon aviation.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports the Clark County Sheriff’s Office says Mary Rosenblum, of Canby, was flying a Piper Super Cub plane when she hit trees around 1 p.m. Sunday and crashed near Battle Ground, Washington.
Rosenblum was the only person found in the damaged plane and died at the scene near Daybreak Field.
She was 65.
The sheriff’s office says Rosenblum and a friend in a separate aircraft had flown to other locations earlier in the day and meant to stop at Daybreak Field.
Rosenblum, who received her private pilot’s license in June 2010, was, at the time, one of the few female pilots in the state.
