Pilot crashes into former home in Colorado
NORTHGLENN, Colorado (AP) — A pilot crashed into a home that he once owned near Denver.
Pilot Brian Veatch confirmed to KMGH-TV (http://bit.ly/Rk1uVI ) that he owned the home, as indicated by property records, but said he didn’t realize that’s where he crashed until someone else pointed it out. He now lives about a mile away.
Veatch, a veteran firefighter, crashed into the unoccupied house Monday. He tried to put out the fire with a garden hose before he was forced away by burning fuel.
Police say it looked like Veatch was trying to land in a field near the house.
The plane was towing a banner for an insurance company and was supposed to fly over a Colorado Rockies baseball game when it crashed.
