NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (WDTN) – Two people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries after a plane crashed at the Andy Barnhart Memorial Airport in New Carlisle.

Lt. Brian Aller of the Springfield Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said the crash was reported just before 2 p.m. Tuesday at the airport located in the 10000 block of Milton Carlisle Road.

The plane, Aller said, was a Skystar Kitfox Classic 4, was attempting to land on a grass runway when the tail struck the ground, causing the plane to flip over onto its top. The plane caught fire after the crash.

Joe Cornor, a witness to the crash, told 2 NEWS that there was a bystander in a car nearby who was able to get to plane within 30 seconds. He was barely able to pull out the 70-year-old pilot and his wife before the plane went up in flames.

Cornor captured footage of the plane after the couple was taken out but before the fire was extinguished.

Bethel Township Fire said that the couple was taken to SION Medical Center with minor injuries and the fire was extinguished.

The Federal Aviation Administration has been notified and is sending investigators to Clark County.
