Pilot Injured in Plane Crash at Airport

Police say the pilot was making a landing on the runway when he struck two unoccupied parked planes.

A pilot is recovering after an airplane crash at the Brandywine Airport in West Goshen Township.

Police say pilot Howard Cooper was operating a white/blue 1977 Grumman. As he was making a landing on the runway, investigators say a strong wind gust hit his plane from the right. Cooper applied full throttle and the plane veered to the left, striking two unoccupied planes parked to the left of the terminal, around 75 yards off the runway.

Cooper suffered minor injuries and was taken to Chester County Hospital where he was treated and released. No one else was on board his plane at the time of the crash.
