Corporate jet wrecks at Macon airport

MACON, Ga. — Authorities say two pilots suffered minor injuries after a corporate jet hydroplaned and crashed after landing on a runway slick with rain in Macon.

The Telegraph newspaper reports the Beech 400 jet slid on the runway, then crossed an embankment and a road before crashing in a wooded area Tuesday morning. Records show the plane took off in Charleston, S.C. It’s owned by Dewberry Capital, an Atlanta-based real estate company.

Bibb County sheriff’s Sgt. Sean DeFoe says the pilot had to be cut from the plane by firefighters, but he and the co-pilot suffered only minor injuries. Their one passenger, whose name was not immediately released, was unharmed.

Ocmulgee East Boulevard was shut down as the Federal Aviation Administration surveyed the wreckage.

The story only indicates one aircraft, yet the headline indicates plural?
