During an airshow event on Sunday morning, a historic plane from World War I crash-landed at the American Heritage Museum. The pilot escaped safely, according to Stow officials.
A plane crash near Barton Road and the American Heritage Museum was reported to the Stow Police and Fire departments shortly after 11 a.m.
According to authorities, first responders discovered a Nieuport 28 from World War I upside down at the end of the runway.
The pilot was the lone passenger on the aircraft, and he evacuated it before the authorities showed there. He did not report any injuries.
According to officials, the first investigation indicated that the single-engine jet’s front landing gear had malfunctioned during the attempted landing, which resulted in the plane flipping over onto its roof.
