Thaddeus T. Longlois, 83, a Natchitoches barber, was pronounced dead at the scene.
It happened about 11 a.m. just west of Hwy. 1 in a soybean field about 300 yards behind houses in the Pan Am subdivision. The scene is within the Natchitoches city limits, just one mile north of the Hwy. 1 bypass.
NPD Chief Micky Dove said McCain's condition is not known, but University Health Shreveport officials said a man from a plane crash in Natchitoches is in their emergency room being treated and evaluated.
Right now, it's not clear if the blue and white Cessna Sky Hawk was taking off or landing. Just beyond trees at the edge of the field is the Natchitoches Regional Airport.
Dove said the FAA and NTSB are launching a joint investigation into what happened to make the plane crash. He said that information will probably not be available for several days.
Both men, Natchitoches residents, were found inside the plane.
The investigation is ongoing.
