RotorWay A600 Talon, N5612Y: Accident occurred May 13, 2022 at Cranland Airport (28M), Hanson, Plymouth County, Massachusetts

HANSON, Massachusetts  — An experimental rotorcraft caught on fire early Friday while on the ground at an airport in Hanson, Massachusetts.

The incident happened at the Cranland Airport on Monponsett Road, fire officials said.

The 81-year-old man who owns the helicopter, which was built from a kit, said he took it out to fly, started it and it caught on fire.

The man said he smelled fuel upon starting the helicopter’s engine. He exited the helicopter just as the fire ignited.

No one was on the rotorcraft at the time of the fire, officials said.

There were no injuries reported, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Hanson Fire Department.
