Had Been Chartered By The USDA
A Cessna 210 which had been chartered by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture went down Monday near William T. Piper Memorial Airport
(KHLV) in Lock Haven, PA. All three people on board were fatally
injured in the crash.
The plane was reportedly on final when it went down short of the
runway about 1300, according to FAA spokesman Jim Peters. He said
the aircraft hit a utility pole, the porch of a house, and three
vehicles in a residential neighborhood before exploding. No one on
the ground was injured.
The Williamsport, PA Sun Gazette reports that witnesses said the
210 appeared to be having engine problems over the city. The pilot
turned towards the airport at a low altitude, but was unable to
make the runway. The names of the people on board have not been
released pending notification of relatives. Airport authorities
said that the pilot had contacted the KHLV to ask about landing and
fuel, but did not mention any problem with the aircraft.
