Teens Survive After Airplane Crashes on Kansas Golf Course

KSAL StaffMarch 20, 2016

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A pair of teenagers was able to walk away from a rented airplane one of them was flying when it crashed onto a Kansas golf course.

Wichita police say the pilot was a 17-year-old boy and the passenger an 18-year-old woman who were on their way from Nashville, Tennessee, to Jabara Airport in Wichita on Friday when they crashed.

The Wichita Eagle reports the 1966 single-engine Mooney came down on the 14th hole at the Tallgrass Country Club, narrowly missing nearby homes. Nikki Womack says she and her daughter saw the plane fly very low over their neighbor’s home before crashing onto the golf course.

Womack says the boy got out and was bleeding from the head, followed by the woman, who had a serious eye injury.
