1 dead in small plane crash in New Milford

A flight instructor died Friday and two others were hurt when an airplane crashed into a small CT airport, authorities said.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane, a Cessna 172, departed Danbury Municipal Airport around 8:30 a.m. and crashed about an hour later in a grassy area a quarter-mile from the New Milford runway. The man was taken to Danbury Hospital by ambulance.

The third person on the plane was 44-year-old Peter Jellen, of NY, who was seriously injured but able to walk from the crash to a nearby home and call for help, police said. They said the pilot was pulled from the plane and flown Hartford Hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries. The conditions of those two people were not released by the NTSB officials.

The plane's registration number, obtained through photos of the crash scene, appears to show that the plane is owned by Arrow Aviation, a flight training school in Danbury that was involved in a fatal plane crash last month.

Around 2 p.m., deputies said a woman in the plane walked nearly a mile away and flagged down a passing vehicle . Emergency services say the plane stalled and then flipped on the runway as it landed.

Police said the co-pilot, a flight instructor employed by Arrow Aviation; Anthony J. Morasco, was killed in the crash.

"We're not able to talk about it", she said.

The FAA said that the plane that crashed is a Cessna C-172. The NTSB tells NBC Connecticut that an investigator is on the way to the scene.
