“It got away from me.”
Those were the words of the pilot of a single engine Cessna airplane that slid off the runway and over an embankment at Port Meadville Airport Wednesday evening.
The FAA is investigating the mishap.
The plane was piloted by a Butler man who was preparing to take off according to what the airport manager told the Meadville Tribune.
Neither the pilot nor his wife, who was a passenger, were injured in the incident.
As of Thursday afternoon, the plane was still in the weeds.
