An urgent 911 call about a possible airplane in trouble Tuesday, April 9, turned out to be a standard training routine, according to local fire officials.
Lancaster County Fire Marshal Stephen Blackwelder said reports of a plane in distress or a downed airplane in the northern end of the county were simply a misunderstanding. The calls were received Tuesday afternoon and emergency crews spent several hours searching for a possible crash site.
“It turns out it was absolutely nothing,” Blackwelder said. “The plane crash never happened.”
