A Liberty University flight-school plane that crashed in a Gladys field during a training exercise early this year didn’t have enough fuel for the flight, according to documents from the Federal Aviation Administration obtained by The News & Advance.
The crash happened in the late afternoon of Feb. 4 while the plane was en route to Lynchburg Regional Airport from the Brookneal/Campbell County Airport.
Student Jonathan Bass, 22, of Chesapeake, and instructor Bruce Barnhart, 52, of Gladys, said in handwritten statements to the FAA they were forced to crash-land the plane after it lost power twice.
