Two Uninjured After Plane Loses Control

CHILOQUIN, Ore. — The Oregon State Police said two people were uninjured Tuesday afternoon when their plane received minor damage attempting a touch-and-go landing on the snow-covered Chiloquin Airport runway.

OSP Trooper Aaron Boyce stated a pilot lost control while attempting a touch-and-go landing at the Chiloquin Airport. The runway was closed due to about 18 inches of piled up snow. The airplane’s wheels dug into the snow as they touched the ground and wings and nose of the plane hit the ground, damaging the prop and wings.

OSP said the pilot, 31-year-old Brett Hooper, and a 34-year-old male passenger, were not injured.
