Services are scheduled Monday morning in Baudette, Minn., for a West Fargo man killed in a Wisconsin plane crash.

Thomas Mitchell, 51, was a retired military officer who once was stationed at Grand Forks Air Force Base and who later served in the North Dakota National Guard.

Mitchell was killed when his experimental plane crashed in a Wisconsin cornfield last Monday, shortly after leaving the Sauk Prairie Airport.

Witnesses reported seeing the aircraft flying north when a wing began to come apart, followed by the second wing breaking off at about 2 p.m.

Born in Dallas, Mitchell and his family later moved to California and then Baudette, where he graduated from high school. He graduated from the University of North Dakota in 1986.
