The plane belonged to Defiance, Ohio-based Farrell 5, LLC. It took off from Groton-New London, Conn., at 5:07 p.m., and was scheduled to land at 7:38 p.m.
The Boone County Communications Center received a 911 call at 7:42 p.m. of a possible plane crash but first responders verified there was no crash. The pilot said the aircraft’s right brake locked up during landing, which forced the plane to the side of the runway.
