On Friday a Centerville, Indiana, man crashed a twin-engine plane into a creek more than 1,000 feet from the Connersville’s Mettel Field runway, Indiana state police said.
The 62-year-old pilot was treated at the scene for minor cuts and abrasions. He said he was not sure what caused the Beechcraft Baron plane to leave the runway shortly after touching down.
His passenger, a 31-year-old man from Knightstown, Indiana, was also treated for minor injuries at the scene.
"I felt really bad because I tore up an airplane," the pilot told the Palladium-Item on Saturday night. He did not want to discuss specifics of the accident because he was cooperating with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigations. "But we made it out OK, so that was good."
The pilot was practicing landing techniques with power to only one engine when the accident occurred, authorities said.
The plane sustained heavy damage. It was removed from the creek to a secure facility for further investigation while Indiana State Police troopers from the Pendleton District investigated the scene. The FAA and NTSB were notified.
Sky Castel Aviation in New Castle, Indiana, has the plane registered to it.
