Incident occurred August 22, 2020 at Simsbury Airport (4B9), Hartford County, Connecticut

A small plane was damaged when it hit trees Saturday afternoon on the ground at Simsbury Airport.

The plane never got airborne, went off the runway and was damaged when it hit trees, Fire Chief James Baldis said.

Firefighters were called to the airport on Wolcott Road around 2 p.m. They found the plane crumpled, but all three occupants had gotten out on their own, Baldis said.

“It was a non-event. They were trying to take off, but didn’t have enough power to get airborne,” Baldis said. “In trying to abort, it veered off into trees.”

There was no fire and no fuel leak.
