Passenger 'Very Seriously Injured'
A plane enroute from Maryland to Florida on Thursday apparently
developed engine trouble and went down just shy of the Anson County
Airport (AFP) near Wadesboro, NC.
The Van's RV-7A had taken off from Greensboro's Piedmont Triad
International Airport (GSO) on the second leg of a flight to
Gainesville, FL (GNV) about 45 minutes prior to the crash. Flight
tracking information obtained from FlightAware indicates the plane
had diverted to AFP from its planned path.
Anson County Sheriff Tommy Allen said emergency calls reporting
the crash were received at 3:02 pm. "Witnesses said the motor was
sporadic and sputtering. Apparently, he was having some kind of
engine problems," Sheriff Allen said.
Witnesses also reported the pilot was attempting to land at the
airport but failed to reach the runway, crashing about 500 feet
short, the Greensboro News-Record said.
The pilot and owner of the plane was identified by Sheriff Allen
as Steven P. Reamer, 57, of Marriottsville, MD. His passenger was
his wife, Pamela, 54. "Very seriously injured," she was medevaced
to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.
