There’s no such thing as a minor fender-bender when it comes to plane crashes, but one pilot seems to have suffered the closest thing to one in Plainville, Connecticut.
Manfred Frost, a 79-year-old pilot, was on his way to eat breakfast when suddenly his plane crashed into a tree and tumbled to the ground. Fortunately, Mr Forst, who was flying solo, only suffered minor injuries due to the crash and was taken to a local hospital.
“I was sitting down at the end of the parking lot here, looked up because I heard the plane. Saw it going directly across probably 200 yards from where I was sitting, knew it was going the wrong way obviously,” said David Thayer. He watched the plane crash right in front of his eyes.The FAA said that they are investigating the cause of the crash but officials did say there was a small fuel leak.
