Cessna 150 Aerobat Left Dangling In The Trees
A 1969 Cessna Aerobat went down late Wednesday night
or early Thursday morning near Stangelville, WI, resulting in
the serious injury of its pilot/owner.
In a new release, Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski said:
"Charles Green, 38, walked to a
nearby home in the town of Franklin and asked for medical help
shortly after 2:30 a.m., after his 1969 Cessna crashed in the woods
southwest of the intersection of Kewaunee County J and Sleepy
"Green flew from West Bend to
Manitowoc on Wednesday, then planned to fly back to West Bend.
Witnesses reported hearing a low-flying plane in the area of the
crash about 10:40 p.m. Wednesday. A rescue call went out at 2:43
a.m. Green was treated by Franklin First Responders and Viking
Rescue, then taken to a Green Bay hospital.
"The plane was found at 7:21 a.m.,
about a mile from where the rescue call was made.
The Green Bay Press Gazette reports that the sheriff
said that alcohol was a possible contributing factor in the
FAA records indicate that the airplane was registered to Mr.
Green. According to the FAA's preliminary accident report, the
airplane went down in a wooded area in Denmark, WI, which is about
10 miles by road from Stangelville. Green was the only person on
board. The FAA listed his injuries as "serious." The
wreckage has been moved to Austin Straubel International Airport in
Ashwaubenon, WI, where it will be examined by the NTSB. (Photo
