Pilot Stuck Due to Plane Mechanical Failure
A pilot in New Jersey was not able to land on the runway at the Central Jersey Regional Airport. Onlookers saw the man approaching but disappeared close to landing. Instead the man crashed into the tree tops near the airport. He immediately called for help on his cellphone. Rescue workers spent four hours trying to help the man who was suspended 70 feet in the air. Due to the crash location, authorities couldn’t get a truck with a ladder into the area. Instead, they manually worked to get the man down. A track spider lift that ran off a track helped retrieve the pilot.
The 33-year-old pilot experienced plane mechanical failure. He wasn’t injured in the crash but was in danger of fuel leaking. The fuel leaking could have explode the plane. Police, FFA and the NTSB are investigating the cause of the plane mechanical failure.
