Mooney On The Porch
There were no serious injuries in the crash of a 1964 C-model Mooney in Middlesex, Virginia, on Saturday that was absorbed by a luckily vacant house. The owner lives elsewhere and there was no one living there. The aircraft, registered in Pensacola, had two adults and a teen aboard when it left Hummel Field near Middlesex about 9 a.m. on Saturday. It was in the sunroom of the house a short time later but not before a couple of trees relieved it of its wings.
Although local reports say the pilot “lost control” there are no details about the events that led to the mishap. The aircraft will be removed from the house on Sunday. The occupants of the aircraft were taken to a local hospital but were released immediately.
