A Single Engine Cessna 180 airplane landed nose down on Runway 35 of Danbury Municipal Airport this morning. The pilot, Jeffrey Butler, was the only person on board at the time and was not injured while attempting a landing at approximately 10:30 this morning.
The Danbury Fire Department used its Ladder Tower to assist with righting the aircraft which was nose
down on the runway. The plane was then towed off the runway. The plane is registered to Butler and is based at Reliant Air in Danbury.
The airport was shut down for a brief time to allow Emergency vehicles to access the Cessna aircraft, and re-opened soon after.
The incident is being investigated by the FAA’s Flight Standards District Office out of Windsor
