A Shenandoah Valley couple had more of an adventure than they bargained for during a weekend flight in a six-seater plane. State Police say the pilot, 61-year-old Myron Rummel of Bridgewater, and his adult female passenger survived a crash landing of their Beechcraft Bonanza at the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport in Weyers Cave. Agency spokeswoman Corinne Geller says Rummel failed to put down the landing gear and his plane landed on its belly and skidded 150 yards before it stopped. It happened shortly after 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Geller says both the pilot and his passenger avoided injuries. The National Transportation Safety Board has been notified of the crash landing in Augusta County.
