A man died when his airplane crashed between runways Sunday morning at the Pueblo Memorial Airport. That crash prompted Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to cancel his scheduled rally at the airport later in the day.

It would have been Romney’s first visit to Colorado since he accepted the Republican party’s nomination.

The Obama campaign also canceled a Sunday event at the United Steelworkers Local Union in Pueblo because of the accident.

68-year-old George McHenry, was the only person on board the plane. The FAA and NTSB are investigating the accident.
