Small aircraft are everywhere if you know where to look. People who live near Kennesaw can see quite a few small planes taking off every day. Small aircraft are used for personal pleasure and for certain jobs. When a crash happens with any sort of personal aircraft, the investigations are long and intense.
Today’s crash reported by WSB Radio didn’t happen in an airplane. Instead, it was an advertising blimp. A small blimp was doing advertising at the U.S. Open when it caught fire and fell in a controlled landing in a field. The pilot was burned in the crash and was flown to a nearby hospital in a medical helicopter. The pilot was the only person in the craft.
Compensation in aircraft cases can be tricky We don’t know if the pilot owned his own craft or if he was working for someone else. If the crash was due to pilot error it may be hard to get compensation, but it’s not likely that this is the case with this one. A maintenance issue or a sudden malfunction could have sparked that fire.
Whatever the cause of the crash, we hope that the pilot heals fully and can cover their expenses.
