No One Hurt In Central Wis. Plane Crash

TOWN OF AURORA, Wis. (AP) — A 78-year-old pilot escaped injury when a plane, not approved for flight, crashed at the Berlin Airport in central Wisconsin.

The crash happened just before 3 p.m. Saturday in the Town of Aurora.

Waushara County sheriff’s officials say the 1962 Cessna 172 had a history of not being flight-worthy prior to the crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.

WLUK-TV reports the pilot has addresses in Wisconsin, Florida and California.

    Are they sure it is the FAA investigating? Usually crashes are investigated by the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board). The FAA regulates aircraft and airspace, but once it plane crashes it’s not their problem. It’s the NTSB’s.

    Any industry experts out there?
