The 74-year-old male passenger inside the plane that crashed at Culpeper Regional Airport Saturday afternoon was listed in serious condition at INOVA Fairfax Hospital on Monday, according to a hospital spokesman.
John Reed Reavis Jr., of Bristow, who was airlifted to the hospital, was seated in the rear of the North American T-6G Texan, a plane often used to train Air Force pilots and in combat during the Korean and Vietnam wars.
The pilot Daniel Allen Haug, 56, of Culpeper was transported to Culpeper Medical Center, but was not listed as a patient Monday.
According to the Virginia State Police, Haug was attempting to land at the airport at about 1:40 p.m. when the plane ran off the side of the runway and overturned.
Haug served as chairman of the Culpeper AirFest committee last year and is a member of the Commemorative Air Force’s National Capital Squadron. His North American T-6G Texan has been a part of many ceremonial flyovers and historical displays.
In early October, Haug, along with three other pilots, flew over a charity golf fundraiser in a missing man formation to honor the late J.J. Quinn, a Culpeper pilot who donated many hours to the Angel Flight organization.
The state police and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the incident.
