BREAKING: Plane Crash at Shreveport’s Downtown Airport
No one hurt when a plane made a crash landing just north of Shreveport's Downtown Airport this morning.
Police got the call at about 8am this morning about the plane landing in a field north of the airport.
Shreveport Fire Department's Chief Fred Sanders says there was no fire. There was also a passenger onboard the Piper Cherokee 140 plane, but that person was not hurt, either. The Chief says the plane was in the air for 30 minutes before the crash landing.
The plane is described as a single engine 4-seater based at the downtown airport. But we do not know who it belonged to at this time. Mark Crawford with the Shreveport Airport Authority tells KEEL News the plane was on a routine maintenance flight before the crash which happened on airport property just short of the runway. A fence on the property may have been damaged.
