Investigation Continues Into Weekend Parachute Gliders Crash


The investigation continues into a weekend accident where two powered “parachute gliders” collided in mid-air near Franklin in Morgan County.

 

The sheriff’s department says 75-year-old Charles Birdsell and 68-year-old Harold Mansfield were piloting the two aircraft when they collided Saturday night.

 

Both were taken to the hospital… so was a 15-year-old boy who was also reportedly aboard one of the gliders.

 

Their conditions were not immediately available.

 

The FAA is among the agencies looking into that crash.
