PLAINVILLE, Conn. — A pilot miraculously only suffered minor injuries after taking off at Connecticut airport and crashing into a tree in a parking lot.

 

Surveillance cameras were rolling as the plane’s wings get lodged in tree branches, pulling the plane to the ground.

 

According to Fox 61, the single engine Cessna 172 had just taken off from Robertson Field Airport around 11: 30 a.m. Monday when it veered off the runway.

 

Pilot Manfred Forst was taken to a nearby hospital for minor injuries, but has since been released.

 

The FAA said they are investigating the crash, but stated it appears there was some kind of fuel leak. It’s too early to say if that is connected to the incident.

Guess that main problem of the pilot will be to pay parking fees till he finds a way to tow away his plane.  Probably it will be so high that he'll have to leave his plane to cover the cost.

it is favorable to know that. Of an accident in plane that yes that is a miracle, so much by the impact of fall of explosive objects of the same one. Careful friends.
