A small plane crashed at just before noon today.
The four-seat 1980 Cessna A185F aircraft veered off the runway and crashed, according to Lt. Steven Ang of the city's police department.
The plane was piloted by Ocean City resident Victor Plumbo.
He was not injured, said Ang.
The pilot believes that a crosswind pushed him off the runway while accelerating during take off. That plane ended up spun around facing the opposite direction from where it tried taking off.
The plane sustained extensive damage in the crash, harming wings, landing gear and propellers.
Plumbo, who lives adjacent to the airport facing the same runway where he took off, was not at home Tuesday afternoon. His phone went unanswered.
The Federal Aviation Administration is conducting the follow-up investigation.
The Ocean City Airport was closed immediately on Tuesday. It was back open on Wednesday morning.
