SAN CARLOS — Two people were hurt Friday night when their single-engine airplane shot off a runway and through a fence at the San Carlos Airport, according to authorities.
The mishap occurred just before 6 p.m. as the pilot of the Cirrus SR-22 tried to take off, said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer. The aircraft ultimately came to a rest on a street adjacent to the airport, it’s nose touching the ground.
Sal Zuno, a spokesman for the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, confirmed that two people aboard the airplane suffered minor injuries.
Additional details about the incident were not available.
The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA will conduct an investigation into the incident, Kenitzer said.
The airport, located at 620 Airport Drive, is home to about 500 aircraft and more than 25 aviation-related businesses, according to its website. Last year, it saw at least 130,000 operations, or take-offs and landings.
