Douglas, GA (WALB) – A nervous passenger may have led to a crash landing in Douglas.Police say the pilot of the antique PT-17 Stearman was giving a ride to someone as part of the World war II 63rd Army Air Force flight training cadet detachment reunion.
But when the yellow Stearman came in for a landing, the passenger, who was nervous, pushed on the brakes, which caused the wheels to lock up causing it to flip and slid to a stop.
Police say the two pilot and his passenger suffered only minor injuries and we are told they were standing on scene shortly following the accident.
The FAA was notified.
