Plane Crashes In Ridgefield Yard
A man described as an experienced pilot suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries when his plane crashed in Ridgefield Saturday afternoon, shortly after takeoff from the Danbury Airport.
No one on the ground was hurt.
A resident of Briar Ridge Road heard the crash and pulled the pilot– who was conscious– out of the upside-down aircraft. Authorities say the plane remains in the yard, upside down, while they clean up a fuel leak.
