Parked plane flips, officials point to wind
Talk about the power of wind!
Aviation officials say they had their hands full this weekend, after this small single-engine airplane flipped over in Berkshire County.
Luckily no one was hurt.
But look at this – it happened at the Harriman-and-West Airport.
According to our media partners at the Berkshire Eagle, the plane was discovered seriously damaged yesterday morning.
V.P. of Greylock’s flying club tells the paper the plane had been parked at the airport for a while, and thinks that recent wind gusts may have loosened or un-hooked straps tying down the plane.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating and says the plane likely belongs to a Plainfield resident.
