A twin-engine plane at Central Jersey Regional Airport crashed into a chain link fence, and two men were injured, reports MyCentralJersey.com.
The two 44-year-old men were attempting to land the plane when it overturned 200 feet off the runway. About 400 feet beyond the fence are trees that border the outskirts of the air field.
Listed in serious condition today, one of the men was airlifted to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. The other man fared better and sustained minor injuries and is in fair condition.
Speculation is that the fence saved the two men from more injury or even from death. It is likely that if not for the fence, the plane would have hit the trees that border the airport and caught on fire.
A retired flight instructor who worked out of Central Jersey Regional Airport said, “I’ve seen a lot of accidents. There is no other way to describe this. It is miraculous that they survived.”
Estimating that the plane was going 60 to 75 mph when it crashed, the flight instructor said that the chain-link fence slowed the plane just enough to absorb some of the energy to keep the plane intact.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the cause of the crash.
