Sen. Jim Inhofe's son was killed in yesterday's plane crash in Owasso, multiple sources confirm.

FAA documents show Anasazi Winds, LLC filed an application to register the aircraft in September.

The senator's son, Perry Inhofe, is listed as the owner of that company, according to the Oklahoma Secretary of State's website.

The plane crashed Sunday near 98th Street North and Memorial.

Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett offered condolences on behalf of the city of Tulsa.

“It is with deep sorrow that we give our condolences to Tulsa's former Mayor Jim Inhofe and his family," Bartlett said in a statement.

"Dr. Perry Inhofe was a man of great integrity, skilled as a surgeon, and an example for all of us. His love for his family and of his profession will always be remembered. I am asking all Tulsans to remember Dr. Inhofe and keep his dear family in our prayers.”

Congressman Markwayne Mullin also offered his condolences.

"Our prayers are with the Inhofe family as we grieve alongside them in the loss of their son Perry," Mullin said. "We will continue to respect the family's privacy during this difficult time and ask others to do the same."

NTSB investigators say the plane left Salina, Kansas around 3 p.m. Sunday and was en route to Tulsa International Airport when it crashed at 3:45.

Investigators said they would spend the next couple of days at the crash site and expect to release a preliminary report on the cause of the crash sometime next week.

Randy Pope lives nearby and witnessed the crash.

"I heard this plane fly over and I thought boy that's strange it's flying so low, but we have planes fly over all the time and then I heard this thump, I guess you would call it or poof noise and then dead silence," Pope said.

He has lived in this area for 20 years and says he hasn't seen anything like this. After the noise he said they saw smoke.

"Then we heard another explosion but it wasn't super loud and then it really started smoking bad," Pope said.
