New Braunfels Regional Airport (KBAZ), Texas

Plane Crashes Just Short of Runway at New Braunfels Regional Airport

(New Braunfels, TX)  --   No injuries were reported when a small airplane crashed just short of the runway at the New Braunfels Regional Airport Friday.

The incident happened Friday afternoon when the plane took off from the Canyon Lake area.

Either during takeoff or shortly after takeoff the plane lost its engine, and so the pilot glided the aircraft towards the New Braunfels Regional Airport only to come up a little short of the actual runway on the far side of the airport property.

Despite initial reports that the plane caught fire when it crashed, New Braunfels Fire officials say there was no fire and no injuries were reported following the crash.
