Airplane Slips Off Runway at Local Airport
December 17, 2013 by Sarah Holst — A pilot and his passenger walked away unharmed from an overturned airplane after a bad landing at a local airport.
Griffith – Merrillville Airport General Manager Craig Anderson says the incident began when a single-engine two-seat plane landed there Monday. As the plane was traveling along the ground, it skidded off the runway and overturned.
Anderson says neither the pilot nor passenger were harmed in the accident, and the aircraft did not sustain any substantial damage.
Anderson says the incident will not require investigation by federal agencies.
