MONTAGUE — A small plane attempting to take off to Orange skidded off the runway and landed upside down in the tall grass at the Turners Falls Airport Thursday afternoon.

The plane’s pilot, the only person in the plane, was not injured from the crash, Turners Falls Fire Department Deputy Chief Leon Ambo said.

While taking off south around 2:30 p.m., the plane veered to the left and skidded, likely hit a dip just off the runway, and flipped over into the tall grass, less than 100 yards from the runway, Ambo said.

Firefighters reported no fluids came out of the plane. An ambulance from Turners Falls Fire Department was at the scene.

The Fire Department and Montague Police Department were expecting the Federal Aviation Administration to come and inspect the scene, per protocol, around 4 p.m.
