World Conflict I-era airplane flips onto roof making an attempt to land close to Massachusetts museum; pilot unharmed

STOW, Mass. (AP) — A World Conflict I-era airplane crashed and flipped over onto its roof because the pilot tried to land outdoors of a army historical past museum in Massachusetts, authorities stated Sunday. The pilot was not damage.

The classic single-engine Nieuport 28 was making an attempt to land shortly after 11 a.m. on the American Heritage Museum in Stow when the entrance touchdown gear failed, the native police and fireplace chiefs stated in a joint information launch.

The pilot, the one individual on board, had eliminated himself from the airplane earlier than first responders arrived, the information launch stated. The pilot’s title was not launched.
