Electrical Problem Grounds Flight to Vineyard

Two people heading to Martha’s Vineyard made an unexpected stop in Hartford when their plane had some sort of electrical problem Wednesday morning. 

The plane, a Bonanza propeller plane, was carrying the two people from Danbury to the island when the pilot reported the trouble and requested a landing at Brainard Airport, Department of Transportation officials said.

Some landing gear collapsed, damaged a light on the runway and caused the plane to go off the runway, according to the DOT.

Emergency crews responded as a precaution because of the reported electrical issues, but there was no fire. No one was hurt.
