A glider crashed during a competition at the Ionia County Airport Tuesday afternoon, killing the pilot. The pilot's name hasn't been released and the cause of the crash is not yet know. A plane towed the glider to around 2,000 feet, at which point the pilot started performing maneuvers. The crash happened at the east end of the airport in Orange Township. There was a second crash, the pilot of that glider was not hurt. The Ionia County Sheriff's Office and the FAA are investigating.
