Small Plane Veers Off Runway Second Consecutive Day; Pilot OK


A small plane that veered off an upstate New York runway after landing this week has again rolled off course, this time during takeoff.

Albany International Airport officials say the pilot was again uninjured when his plane left the runway and rolled through grass onto a taxiway on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, a brake apparently locked, causing the plane inbound from Indianapolis to turn off the runway.

An airport spokesman says the pilot’s original destination was Vermont, but he doesn’t know if that’s where the plane was heading Wednesday.

The airport closed briefly for emergency equipment to reach the plane.

It’s unknown what caused Wednesday’s mishap. Federal air safety authorities are investigating.
