MILLERSBURG -- Two men involved in a single-engine airplane crash Friday afternoon walked away from the incident with minor injuries.
According to the Holmes County Sheriff's office, deputies were dispatched to the Holmes County Airport about 12:56 p.m. on reports of a plane crash.
Holmes Fire District No. 1 and EMS that responded to the scene found the plane's two passengers — Walter Fawcett, 75, and David Marshall, 59, both of Wolfeboro, N.H. — already out of the aircraft.
Sheriff Timothy Zimmerly reported that the men suffered minor bumps and cuts, and remained at the scene of the crash during the investigation Friday.
Fawcett was landing the single-engine 1937 Waco aircraft on the runway and crosswinds began shifting the aircraft to the left, causing hard braking by Fawcett.
Fawcett told deputies the brakes locked and the aircraft went nose-first into the runway, causing the plane to flip over onto its top.
The aircraft was removed from the runway and will be stored until members of the Federal Aviation Administration in Cleveland and the National Transportation Safety Board continue the investigation.
