HANSON — One person sustained minor injuries when a plane went off the end of the runway at Cranland Airport Monday — the second incident at the small airport off Monponsett Street in four days. The white and red aircraft ended up on its roof.
Other than the unusual timing following a fatal crash at the same airport on Friday, Aug. 24, this was a minor incident, according to Hanson Police Chief Michael Miksch said.
The pilot, a 20-year-old male from Florida had already landed when the plane flipped at the end of a runway, according to witnesses. Hanson Fire Department Ambulance transported him to South Shore Hospital.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), already on scene investigating the Aug. 24 crash will also be investigating Monday’s incident, Miksch said. BCI officers were also on scene along with Hanson Police and Fire departments.
