DANBURY, Conn. — A battery-powered glider crashed into the roof of a Connecticut home, injuring the pilot and scaring a mother and her two children who were watching TV.
The aircraft had taken off from Danbury's airport earlier in the day and the mayor says the pilot thought he had 20 minutes of power left and was headed for the airport. An airport official says he ran out of power.
Fire Chief TJ Wiedl says the glider mainly uses the power to take off and, if needed, in flight.
Officials say the pilot sustained minor injuries.
