GORHAM - A small plane crash at Gorham Airport did not lead to any injuries, but the crash, near the town's municipal water source, raised some water safety concerns.
Gorham Water & Sewer were called to the scene on Thursday morning to ensure the water supply was protected throughout the day. The Gorham Airport remained closed while the airplane was removed.
State officials say the single engine, two-seater took off shortly after 8 a.m. but the pilot was unable to gain enough altitude on take-off and crashed into trees about 50 yards from the end of the runway. The location was within a critical protected water source area for the town’s municipal water system.
The two occupants were able to get out of the airplane without help and nothing leaked or spilled from the aircraft as a result of the crash.
Gorham Police, Fire, EMS, Water & Sewer and Public Works were supported on scene by the Bureau of Aeronautics and the Federal. Any witnesses to the crash are encouraged to contact the Gorham Police Department at 603-466-2334
