Kathryn's Report:

GORHAM, N.H. —Officials are investigating what caused a small plane to crash in Gorham Thursday morning.

According to officials, the plane did not have enough power to attain altitude while taking off and crash-landed 50 yards off the end of the runway.

The pilot was forced to land in what town officials called a critical protected water source area for the town's water system. Crews responded to ensure the protection of the water supply, officials said.

Officials said the plane did not have any leakage or spillage.

The Gorham Airport was closed while the plane was removed from the scene.

Police said both the pilot and passenger were uninjured.

Any witnesses are encouraged to contact Gorham police at 603-466-2334.
