BLAIR, Neb. (AP)

        Authorities say the fatal crash of a glider near Blair Airport occurred soon after the aircraft's canopy opened unexpectedly as the glider was being towed aloft.
        Nebraska authorities have identified the pilot as 59-year-old Michael Boska, who lived in Glenwood, Iowa. The crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. Saturday.        

        Witnesses say that after the canopy opened, Boska lost control of his glider. It went airborne but soon plunged and crashed while still attached to the tow plane.
