While Attempting Landing at Bulverde Airport
Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011
(Comal County, TX) — Bulverde Police and investigators with the FAA and the NTSB are looking into what caused a small airplane to crash just shy of the Bulverde Airport runway yesterday afternoon. KENS-5 in San Antonio reports that at just before 4pm a small Grumman 2-seater airplane was attempting to land at the Bulverde Airport when the plane dipped too low, clipped some trees, and crashed into the Cibolo Creek. The plane, which took off from El Paso, was picking up a local hunter to go on a South Texas hunting trip, when the plane went down. The aircraft remained intact during the crash, and no injuries were reported. In fact, the pilot was missing immediately after the crash. He apparently got out on his own power and simply walked away from the scene, and at last check, investigators were looking for that man.
