SPARTANBURG CO., SC (WSPA) – Nobody was hurt when a small single-engine plane crashed Monday afternoon in Spartanburg County.
The crash happened at a construction site off of Cannons Campground Road near Silverton Street.
The pilot was the only person on the plane – an amateur-built Kitfox IV – when it crashed and was not hurt, according to the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said the plane was departing Spartanburg Downtown Memorial Airport when it began having engine problems.
The sheriff’s office said the pilot was unable to restart the engine and decided to make an emergency landing.
