BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- UPDATE: 08/12/2017 2:00 PM

The plane that crashed on Cross Winds Golf Course Saturday morning was owned by Dorian and Elaine Walker, who is a former Mayor of Bowling Green. The pilot was Terry Richardson.

Richardson, a retired Captain in the Navy, is a very experienced pilot.

The plane was used for Friends of Jenny, a non-profit organization formed to remind us of the importance of the Curtiss JN-4 Jenny biplane, which was most widely known for barnstorming when it became the first mass produced aircraft flight trainer during World War I.

A small plane has crashed on Cross Winds Golf Course near the Bowling Green Warren County Regional Airport.

The historic biplane crashed near Hole 4 on the golf course. We're told it clipped a tree before crashing.

The pilot was transported to a hospital. We're told he suffered from a gash to the head, but that he was up moving and talking.

We have a reporter on scene, and will continue to update you as more details become available.
