Aircraft Crashes Inbound to OSH


A pilot was injured after an aircraft crashed while landing at Oshkosh’s Wittman Regional Airport on Sunday evening, according to EAA and news reports. The unidentified aircraft was landing on Runway 36 about 6 p.m. but crashed short of the runway, according to local news reports. The FAA and NTSB are investigating.

EAA tweeted that the airport was closed, then 9/27 reopened until the normal closing time of 8 p.m. The pilot was the lone occupant in the plane and was taken to a local hospital. Sunday’s arrivals for the day before the official start of AirVenture were unusually congested as many flights were delayed due to thunderstorms over the weekend followed by low ceilings early Sunday morning.
