A pilot and his son crashed while trying to land at Chesapeake Ranch Estates airport in Calvert County, Lusby, Maryland, on Sunday evening, according to Southern Maryland Newspaper.
Father and son were flying back from Chicago, Illinois, in a fixed-wing single engine plane.
When they tried to land on the paved runway, the plane overshot the runway, hit some trees north of the runway and then slid along the ground at the end of the runway, John Eney, the airport’s manager, said.
“I heard the prop going into the trees,” Eney said Monday morning. It sounded “like a tree going into a chipper.”
He said that he was talking to the pilot on the VHF radio prior to the crash. Although it was dark, Eney could still see that the plane was not lining up correctly with the runway.
As of Monday, the pilot was still at Prince George’s Shock Trauma with numerous broken bones, his wife said.
“He’s not in the ICU, so that’s a good thing,” she said.
Her son also went to the hospital and was released on Sunday night with minor injuries.
The Federal Aviation Administration is going to investigate.
