Small Plane Crash in Plainville CT
Where's GMC when you need him, and all his wisdom about rich people flying planes for a hobby.... :rolleyes:
Anyways, authorities haven't said who the pilot was, or what the tail number of his/her plane was, but this airport recently became my home airport. Thoughts go out to the family.
PLAINVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) -- One person was killed when a plane crashed at Robertson Airport in Plainville Thursday night.
The accident happened around 7 p.m., right as the worst of Thursday's storm started to move through the state.
Officials said a Cessna 172 aircraft was making a southerly approach to the airport when it suddenly took a nose dive into the fencing around the runway.
After hitting the fence, parts of the plane completely separated from the body and scattered around the ground.
The plane was on fire for a short period of time.
One person was killed in the crash.
The person's identity has not yet been released.
At this time, it is unclear if weather played a role in the crash.
Investigators from NTSB will take over the investigation
