Small Plane Crashes In The Aero Club

A small plane crashed last Friday afternoon in Wellington’s Aero Club neighborhood.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office officials say the plane crashed into the pool of a home on Britten Lane. The PBSO had part of Greenbriar Blvd. blockaded after the crash. The pilot of the plane was airlifted by Trauma Hawk after a delay in removing him from the plane.

Because jet fuel spilled into the pool, the pilot could not be removed until the threat of fire was eliminated. However, the pilot was not submerged.

Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue Capt. Don Delucia said the pilot’s injuries were not life threatening.

Two people in the home at the time of the crash were not injured.
