Plane damages wing at Brookville Air Park
Two people were not injured Tuesday afternoon when the light plane they were in rolled off the runway at Bookville Air Park and ended up with damage to a wing and landing gear.
The pilot, who was with a friend for a joyride, was attempting to take off when a gust of wind kicked up, said Sgt. Jeff Kramer with the Ohio Highway Patrol post in Dayton.
When the pilot tried to slow down to attempt a maneuver, the plane rolled into grass at the end of the runway and a landing gear collapsed. That caused the plane called a “tail dragger” to tilt, which caused damage to the wing and the landing gear, Kramer said.
Rescue units and OSP troopers were dispatched at about 4:20 p.m. to Arlington and Pleasant Plain roads, near the air park in northern Montgomery County and about a mile north of Interstate 70, on a report of a light plane that crashed.
The pilot, who was not identified by name, is experienced with more than 3,000 hours of flight time, Kramer said.
An investigator from the FAA will document the incident, but the pilot is not likely to be found at fault because of his experience, Kramer said.

BROOKVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – A gust of wind blew a small plane off the end of a runway Tuesday afternoon at the Brookville Airpark.
Investigators say the aircraft is known as a “tail dragger”. It drags its tail as it takes off. A gust of wind ended up pushing it off the runway before it ever took flight.
Two people were onboard. They were not hurt.
