Wheeling Plane Misses Apts
A TennAir LLC Beechcraft Super King Air 200 #N92JR out of Clarksville TN developed a problem, and diverted to Wolf Road, just shy of flying into the Foxboro apartments.
At 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, the plane stopped half on the street, barred from hitting the apartment complex by a stand of trees. A couple of eleven year olds witnessed the force landing and ran into their apartments in anticipation of an explosion that didn’t happen. They did get interviewed about the accident.
The pilot had trouble with the plane and managed to get on the ground without injuring any one.
He survived, although not quite at the airport in Wheeling Illinois. THe extent of damage to the plane was not released.
