“They got lucky,” said Lincoln Park Fire Chief Sal Marino, whose volunteer department responded to a plane crash on Sunday afternoon, according to NJ.com.
A 2005 AG-5B Tiger Aircraft crash-landed at Lincoln Park Airport. Witnesses say that it bounced twice on the runway and then landed in a tree. Its two occupants were relatively uninjured.
“The plane came in real steep, real fast,” said a witness, who said he has some flying experience. “I knew without a doubt that it was going to crash.”
Other witnesses said that the plane’s fuselage broke in two. The rear end landed in a ditch, with the front end suspended several feet off the ground.
The witnesses were among the patrons at the Sunset Pub & Grill, a restaurant overlooking the north-south runway, which is about 500 feet from where the plane crashed.
The pilot was a 58 year-old man from Edinburg, New York, according to police. The only passenger was the pilot’s sister. Both occupants walked away from the accident with only minor injuries. They were treated at the scene by the Lincoln Park Volunteer First Aid Squad.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash.
Could this accident have been caused by the pilot's inexperience or by pilot error?
