On November 6, 2012, about 1220 central standard time, a Piper PA-28-140 airplane, N7337J, impacted terrain near Anadarko, Oklahoma. The private pilot, the sole occupant, was fatally injured. The airplane was substantially damaged and a post-crash fire ensured. The airplane was registered to and operated by a private individual under the provisions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 as a personal flight. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight that operated on a visual flight rules flight plan. The flight departed the Crosbyton Municipal Airport (8F3), Crosbyton, Texas, at 1207, and was destined to the Anadarko Municipal Airport (F68), Anadarko, Oklahoma.
According to statements provided by witnesses, the airplane landed on runway 17 at F68.
