Pilot injured in glider crash

By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

An 80-year-old man was injured when the motorized glider he was piloting crashed at the Waimea-South Kohala Airport shortly after 10:00 a.m. Sunday. The man was approaching the airport to land in glider mode, when he suddenly lost altitude while turning into the landing pattern. Investigators say the pilot was unable to re-start his engine as he attempted to make it to the runway and was forced to land in a pasture 150 yards southeast of the landing strip. The man was taken to the North Hawai`i Community Hospital in stable condition. The glider, valued at $250,000, sustained
moderate damage.
