Station 37 Fire 
At 5:00pm Stations 37 and 38 were dispatched to the Central Jersey Airport for the airplane crash. Station 37 responded with Deputy Chief 37, Asst. Chief 37, Rescue 37, Engine 37 and Tanker 37. Also responding were: Chief 38, Deputy Chief 38, Ladder 38, Rescue 38, the Fire Marshals units and County HAZMAT. Once on location Deputy 37 established command and confirmed a private passenger aircraft that had crashed in the neighboring cemetery property. Upon arrival the pilot had self extricated the aircraft. District firefighters mitigated fuel loss from the aircraft’s fully loaded tanks and prepared for fire suppression. Members cleared at approximately 10:00 pm. 




HILLSBOROUGH, New Jersey - A single-engine aircraft crashed in Sacred Heart Cemetery along the property line adjacent to Central New Jersey Airport around 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The pilot was able to unstrap his seat harness and slithered out of the plane. He was uninjured, according to bystanders. There were no passengers in the plane.

The plane clipped the chain link fence with its fixed landing gear and nose dived into the ground, flipping the plane over. A huge gouge was left in the ground where the propellor hit, forcing the plane to tip over, according to bystanders.

The crash occurred in a remote section of the cemetery towards the rear of the property, hundreds of yards distant from any grave sites.

Police and emergency personnel were on the scene, with investigators from the Federal Aviation Authority expected to arrive around 7:30 p.m.

A HazMat unit was called in to secure a small fuel leak from the plane.

Airport owner Joe Horner said the fuel tanks in the wing of the plane would be pumped out first; the wing would then be disassembled so that the fuselage of the plane could be placed on a flatbed truck to be removed from the crash site and moved to a secure location for investigators to get a closer look.

Horner said the plane was based at Vansant Airport in Erwinna, Pennsylvania, 29 miles directly west of the airport in Hillsborough. Horner said it was the type of plane that could be built by a hobbyist inside of an airplane hangar.

The plane was largely intact following the crash. Pieces of the wing tip were scattered in front of the engine, which was crumpled from the impact.

The airport is located at 1034 Millstone River Road.

This was the second crash at the small airport in less than a year.

In September 2019, a Cessna 172 plane crashed into the treetops along the south side of the Manville Causeway around noon on its approach to the runway.

The pilot, identified as a 33-year-old Somerset County resident, told authorities the plane’s engine had stalled, forcing him to land in the wooded area short of the runway an estimated 70-75 feet in the air. There were no other passengers.

He was uninjured and managed to make a call on his cell phone to report the incident; he remained trapped in the trees for nearly four hours until rescue personnel using a bucket lift truck from a landscaping company were able to remove him from the plane.  Aerial photos and video from news helicopters showed the plane intact, sitting on top of the tree canopy supported by the tree limbs.

HILLSBOROUGH – The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating, and the National Transportation Safety Board will determine what caused a single-engine aircraft to veer off a runway at Central Jersey Regional Airport, hit a fence and flip over.

At 5 p.m. Tuesday, a Comp Air 6 plane veered off Runway 25 on departure from the airport on Millstone River Road, FAA spokeswoman Arlene Salac said in a statement.

The pilot was the only person onboard the aircraft, Salac said.

Police said the crash occurred in an open field on the 1000 block of Millstone River Road. In a Fire Station 37 Facebook post, the field was identified as the neighboring Sacred Heart Cemetery property. The post also indicated the pilot self-extricated from the aircraft.

The pilot, Joe Gubernat, 64, of Lebanon Township, was transported to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, police said.  

Responding units to the scene included the Hillsborough Police Department, Hillsborough Fire Stations 37 and 38, Hillsborough Office of Emergency Management, Hillsborough Fire Safety, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rescue Squad, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Mobile Intensive Care Unit, Somerset County Hazmat and Manville Police Department, police said.

Abnormal Runway Contact: Waco YKC, N14139; accident occurred July 14, 2020 at Andy Barnhart Memorial Airport (3OH0), New Carlisle, Clark County, Ohio

Aircraft: Waco YKC
Aircraft Damage: Substantial
Defining Event: Abnormal runway contact
Injuries: 1 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General Aviation - Personal

The pilot was practicing full-stop landings in the tailwheel-equipped airplane while on a local personal flight. The pilot reported that his first two landings were uneventful and that the surface wind was calm. He stated that before his third landing he had made two go-arounds because the airplane was not established on a proper descent path to the runway. The pilot reported that on his third attempt the airplane touched down with excessive speed and about 100 ft before the halfway point of the 2,000 ft long runway. The pilot applied "moderate" braking about 600 ft from the end of the runway in attempt to slow the airplane, but the airplane began to slide on the dew-covered grass. When it became apparent that the airplane would not stop before the end of the runway, the pilot intentionally ground-looped the airplane in attempt to avoid a runway excursion. However, the airplane continued to slide off the end of the runway and the lower right wing impacted the airport perimeter fence. The airplane then nosed over onto the fence. The lower right wing main spar fractured during the accident. The pilot reported no mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane. Postaccident examination confirmed flight control continuity and found no issues with the wheel brakes.

The flight instructor stated that the student pilot made a stable approach to the runway during an orientation flight. During ground rollout, the airplane veered to the left and the flight instructor stated "I have the controls" on two different occasions. The student pilot did not understand the flight instructor, which resulted in the two pilots "fighting" over the flight controls. The airplane subsequently exited the runway and struck a ditch, damaging the right wing. The flight instructor stated there were no mechanical issues with the airplane.

The cabin entry door popped open during the takeoff roll. The pilot immediately rejected the takeoff; however, the airplane did not slow down. As the pilot attempted to exit onto a taxiway at the end of the runway, the airplane departed the pavement and came to rest in a ditch causing substantial damage to the forward fuselage, and damage to nose gear and propellers. during a postaccident inspection, a Federal Aviation Administration inspector determined that the left main landing gear brake disc was discolored consistent with overheating. The brake liners were worn at or beyond service limits. The right main landing gear brake disc and liners remained within service limits; although, the disc was warped. No other anomalies were observed.
