Two people were injured Wednesday morning, January 11, near Fitchburg (Massachusetts) Municipal Airport, according to the Worchester Telegraph.
The pilot crash-landed his troubled plane and avoided hitting any buildings. No one on the ground was harmed, but the pilot and his passenger were injured.
“The pilot looked for an area to mitigate any harm or damage,” said officials.
A 56-year-old male flight instructor from Framingham and a 48-year-old male passenger from Acton were practicing touch-and-go landings at the airport. The instructor was at the controls when he experienced engine trouble.
The pilot told police that when he realized the plane was going to crash, he tried to find an open area in which to land and that the plane may have hit a small stand of trees before bouncing to the ground.
The passenger is believed to have suffered a leg injury. He was found on the ground after the crash holding his knee. The pilot is believed to have suffered a minor back injury.
Both men were taken to Health Alliance Leominster Campus soon after the 9:30 a.m. incident.
The plane, a Cessna 150, sustained heavy damage.
A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said an investigator has been dispatched to Fitchburg. The crash is also being investigated by the state police, the National Transportation Safety Board, and the Fitchburg Police Department
