Two Men Free Themselves After Plane Crashes, Overturns at Hampton Airfield
Two men were able to free themselves Wednesday morning from an overturned plane at Hampton Airfield, authorities said.
“The pilot and passenger had been seat belted and were able to exit the plane without assistance,” police Chief Kathryn Mone and fire Chief Lajoie said in a joint statement.
When first responders arrived at the airfield they found a Vans RV-6, a two-seat, single-engine plane, overturned in the snowy median between the runway and the taxiway.
Pilot Robert Turcotte, 70, of Broad Brook, Connecticut, and his passenger, William Kulle, 68, of Springfield, Massachusetts, were treated for minor injuries on the airfield by EMTs, according to Mone and LaJoie.
They left Skylark Airport located in East Windsor, Connecticut, at about 8:30 a.m. destined for Hampton Airfield.
