FREDERICK, Md. – Frederick city police say a plane stolen from a hangar at Frederick Airport crashed into grass by a runway when the pilot lost control.

Maryland Policing

Officers called to the airport around 2:15 a.m. Monday were told that after the plane crashed, a man who was operating the Piper Super Cub airplane ran from the area.

A man who matched the description of the pilot was found in the woods nearby and police detained him for questioning.

Police say the plane was taken from a nearby hangar without the owner’s authorization.

Police say the investigation is being coordinated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Federal Aviation Administration and Frederick City Airport Management.

    I've recovered a couple hundred stolen vehicles, but never a stolen aircraft. I wonder if I use the same impound form. LOL! Seriously, glad everyone is in on this investigation. Wonder which group this guy might be connected to.

    Let this be a lesson to everyone out there to not leave the keys in your airplane or some dumbass could just come and steal it.

    Reminds me of the guy I stopped once for speeding. I said "Partner the way your flying around here let me see your pilots license"...Well turns out he was a licensed pilot and he handed me his pilots license. I laughed at myself for that one for trying to be the cool cop. Any way I gave him a warning, after he showed me his drivers license of course.
