New Bedford, Mass. (WHDH) – A small plane was picked up by Norster’s strong winds at Massachusetts Airport Wednesday morning and crashed into the middle of a street.
The plane was secured at New Bedford Airport, but strong winds threw the plane into the air and over the fence sometime between 5:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., WPRI-TV reported.
A video clip from the scene showed damage to the nose and wings of the plane.
Michael Crane, the airport’s assistant manager, told news outlets that the plane belonged to Bridgewater State University and weighed less than 1,000 pounds. Crane indicated that it does not have an engine because it was involved in a crash.
There were no reports of injuries.
Since then the plane has been secured with a fence.
