WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A longtime Wichita aircraft worker has died from injuries he suffered in an accident on the job.

Officials of Spirit Aerosystems say Jerry Milligan was injured Thursday afternoon when he and other workers were moving a fuselage panel. Milligan died Saturday at a Wichita hospital.

Spirit issued a statement saying it's investigating details of the accident and cooperating with outside investigators.

Milligan was a 24-year employee of the plant. Spirit AeroSystems was formed in 2005 when Boeing spun off its commercial aircraft operations in Wichita and Oklahoma.
