Middletown, NY - One man was killed and another was injured when a small plane crashed Saturday morning in upstate New York.

The Federal Aviation Administration said two people were on board the Aeronca 7AC aircraft that went down in a wooded area shortly after taking off from Randall Airport in Middletown.

State Police said one man was killed and the other was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Billy Kabe said he and his friends were in the neighborhood to ride motorcycles when someone came up to him and said, “quick, call 911, a plane just went down.”

He said one man was inside the plane, unconscious. A second was out of the plane, injured but alert.

“All we did was keep talking to him, try to keep him responsive until the emergency response got on scene, which was very quickly,” said Kabe.

Rescuers arrived and freed the man from the wreckage.


“Multiple cutters and sawzalls were required,” an official said.

The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
