TULSA, Oklahoma -

A 24-year-old Tulsa man died Tuesday afternoon when an airplane he was flying crashed and burned southeast of Dallas.

Authorities say Cody Stewart was working for a company that inspects pipelines from the air.

They said Stewart's Cessna Cardinal 177 clipped guy wires of a cell phone tower causing him to lose control and crash in Rusk County.

The plane exploded on impact with the ground.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.
