The pilot reported that during the takeoff roll with a reported 80° left crosswind of 18 knots, with gusts to 24 knots, the airplane unexpectedly became airborne due to a wind gust. The pilot aborted the takeoff when the airplane drifted off the right side of the runway, and landed in the dirt, closed the throttle and applied braking. As the airplane continued forward its right wing collided with a runway approach light, which resulted in substantial damage to the right wing.

The pilot reported no mechanical anomalies with the airframe or engine that would have precluded normal operation.

MARIETTA, Georgia — Authorities are investigating a plane crash just outside of Senoia in Coweta County while allegedly performing stunts.

Coweta County Fire Chief Deron Wilson confirmed that the plane crash happened in the area of Chestelhurst Road and Cody Trail - a wooded area that also has several houses.

According to Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson Kathleen Bergen, the crash happened around 12:40 p.m. and involved an Stolp SA-750 Acroduster Too. The 61-year-old pilot, whose name and condition were not released, was the only person onboard the aircraft.

11Alive has since learned that the pilot was injured in the crash but was able to walk away and was taken to Atlanta Medical Center. Authorities said he had lacerations to his face and may have also had a broken arm.

Bergen said the aircraft came down in a wooded area. According to the Coweta County Sheriff's Office, it was roughly 200 yards from where an airplane crashed back in January. 

Authorities also said the crash happened while the pilot was performing stunts and flew too low.

Rusty Stonica said he was in the backyard at his daughter and son-in-law's house when they saw the plane come down.

"He was flying around and he was doing a little swirling and all and then he clipped the tree back here and we saw some parts fall off the tree in the woods."

Stonica said he noticed the plane was "wobbling in the air" before it flew over the road and made a turn and went down. He said he rushed out when he saw the crash hoping to help the pilot.

"It was just by the grace of God I walked right to the plane," he said. "I walked right up in the woods and saw the plane about 40 yards away from me."

As he was yelling for help to get the pilot out when he found the plane when he heard a voice from behind him.

"He said, 'I know, I was in it,' so I walked over there to him," Stonica said.

From there, he walked the injured pilot, who was bleeding from his head and his arms, to the road.

A pilot doing stunts luckily walked away after his plane crashed outside Senoia.

Coweta County Fire Chief Pat Wilson confirmed the crash happened in the area of Chestlehurst Road and Cody Trail, around 12:41 p.m. Saturday.

The blue and white prop plane was found across the pond near In Jesus Name Church.

The pilot, a 61-year-old male, was found walking and sustained a head injury. He was transported by ground ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center, according Lt. Keith Addis with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

“The pilot said he was doing some stunts in the area, got too low and clipped a tree,” Addis said. “He was able to get it back across the power lines, away from the houses, and went down in a wooded area.”

The plane was identified as an Stolp SA-750 Acroduster Too, according to FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen.

The plane is a member of the Big T Airstrip where another crash occurred last month. That crash killed both occupants.
