WESTFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - Investigators have released new details on a weekend plane crash at Crazy Bob's Airport in Medina County. On Saturday evening, a single-engine private plane crashed during its final approach at the Westfield Township airport.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol, which is investigating, says the plane's landing gear got stuck in the soft ground, causing it to overturn on the grass runway.
"It doesn't appear that mechanical issues were a factor for this crash. It appears that when the pilot touched the ground, the wheels became lodged in the mud, causing the plane to overturn," explained Lieutenant Mark Neff.
The only one on board the Cub Crafters CC18-180 was the pilot, Robert Syme, 80, of Westfield Township. That same name is listed as the owner of airfield.
