BLACKSBURG, Va. — A plane made a crash landing Friday afternoon at the Virginia Tech Montgomery Executive Airport just a few hundred yards from businesses.
Pilots tell WDBJ7 the plane is a Piper Comanche, made in the mid 1960s.
Police tell WDBJ7 that the plane hit the asphalt first and then made one big bounce into a fence about 50 yards from the terminal.
It appears the plane may have lost power as it was trying to make it to the runway, before a storm.
We're told the pilot may have had no choice but to crash land.
The plane's tail got caught on the fence and may have stopped it from crashing into other planes nearby.
No one was hurt.
Crews are responding to a plane crash at the Virginia Tech-Montgomery Executive Airport.
A lieutenant with the Virginia Tech Police Department says there are no injuries.
The lieutenant did say that the plane took out a fence line.
