Accident at Pella Airport

Posted By News On May 13, 2013 @ 6:29 am In Today’s Local News | Comments Disabled

A pilot and passenger who were making a Mother’s Day visit to Pella had a surprise–but ultimately lucky–landing yesterday at the Pella Airport. At approximately 11am the Pella Fire Department, Pella Ambulance, Pella PD, and the Marion County Sheriff’s office responded to the call of an upside down airplane on the airstrip at the Pella Airport. While the cause of the accident is unknown, officials on scene tell KNIA/KRLS News that the pilot and passenger, from Marshalltown, may have caught in a crosswind upon landing, and the plane flipped on its top. Both walked away from the accident.
