A Wisconsin man died in yesterday's plane crash near Denver yesterday.

The Adams County Coroner says he was 41-year-old Salil Sinha of Marshville.

The single-engine Cessna 182 he was piloting crashed and exploded in a vacant field in a residential area near Thornton.

Strong winds in the area temporarily grounded planes at Denver International Airport in the afternoon.
