2 Planes & 1 Runway Lead to Close Call at Local Airport

February 20th, 2015 by

imageSaturday afternoon, around 3 pm, an agricultural plane  (cropduster) and a privately owned plane are taking off/leaving at the same time at Ellis Field.

There was no contact, and no one was injured, as a potential collision was avoided.

However, the crop-duster, in his effort to avoid a mishap, came to a stop in the muddy field at the north end of the runway.

With the assistance of a couple of bystanders, who helped push the plane back to the paved surface, the calm pilot resumed his plannex schedule for the rest of the day.

One Response to “2 Planes & 1 Runway Lead to Close Call at Local Airport”

  1. Steve says:

    That is not what happened. The Crop-duster pulled out on the runway for takeoff as the Privately owned plane made his call for final (landing). The crop-duster was not paying attention and should not have pulled onto the runway like it did.
