Plane Runs Off KSU Airport Runway Sunday
The plane, which was carrying the pilot and one passenger, slid off the runway Sunday.
No injuries were reported when a plane slid off the Kent State University Airport Sunday afternoon.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the 1998 Comp Air 6 landed in Stow and after the pilot, Brad Leeman, 32, of South Carolina, landed the plane, he over-corrected and went over the east edge of the landing strip, which disabled his aircraft in the mud.
The plane was carrying one passenger, Naomi Leeman, 26, of South Carolina.
The left wing of the airplane was damaged.
The plane took off at the Galion Municipal Airport and landed in Stow at 1:10 p.m.
The FAA was notified of the incident and it is under investigation.
This is the third incident at the KSU Airport this year. Of the incidents, two instances were planes going off the runway by private planes. The third was a student's plane down on a runway. No injuries were reported in any of the situations.
