Updated: Cape Air plane crashes at Cape Cod Gateway Airport in Hyannis while on training flight

HYANNIS – A Cape Air Cessna 402C reportedly crashed while trying to land at the Cape Cod Gateway Airport in Hyannis just before 3:30 PM Monday. Two people were on board and both declined any medical treatment. Firefighters checked for any fuel leaking from the aircraft and disconnected the battery to prevent any fire. The National Weather Service reported NW winds were gusting to 24 MPH at the time of the crash though it does not appear weather was a factor in the crash. The Federal Aviation Administration was notified to investigate the crash.

Cape Air spokesperson Kelly Collopy tells Cape Wide News: “During a training flight on April 26, 2021, at 3:30 PM, flight #2714B was involved in an incident upon landing at the Cape Cod Gateway Airport (HYA). During a training maneuver the aircraft landed and exited the runway into the grass causing aircraft damage. One instructor and one student were on board. Both employees are safe and uninjured.”
