Family members say an Arizona man killed in a small-plane crash in Casa Grande had been flying since he was 14.
 
The Green Valley News reports that family says 52-year-old Stephen J. Stafford had taught hundreds of students to take to the air
 
Authorities say Green Valley resident Stafford and 65-year-old Del Steinbronn of Tucson died Wednesday when their twin-engine Beechcraft King Air E90 went down during landing north of a runway at Casa Grande Municipal Airport. The men, longtime friends, died on impact.
