Plane crash at Hampton Airfield

The plane that crashed at Hampton Airfield on Feb. 24.

Two men suffered minor injuries when their small airplane overturned on landing at Hampton Airfield this morning.

The 70-year pilot and his 68-year-old passenger took off from Skylark Airport in Connecticut, according to North Hampton rescue officials. They flew in what’s known as a kit-plane – an amateur-built aircraft with one engine and two seats.

Responders say the plane crashed in Hampton and was found flipped over in the snowy median beside the runway. They say both passengers wore seatbelts and could get out of the plane on their own.

The airfield is now closed pending a formal government investigation.
