Plane crashes near Easton Airport, investigation underway



An investigation is underway after a plane crashed Thursday while approaching the Easton Airport.

Maryland State Police said troopers from the Easton Barrack responded to Ennis Killen Road at about noon for a reported plane crash.

A pilot and student pilot were in a Piper Geronimo twin-engine plane that crashed in a field in the area of Baileys Neck Road as they were preparing to land at the Easton Airport, according to police.

A preliminary investigation determined the left engine failed while the landing gear was being lowered. Police said the hydraulics on the landing gear also failed and could not return back to position.
