Man crashed stolen plane before it left the ground: Police
From the Associated Press: Frederick city police say a homeless man tried to leave town in a stolen plane but crashed the single-engine aircraft on a Frederick Municipal Airport runway before he ever left the ground.
Fifty-one-year-old Calvin Cox faced a bond hearing Monday on charges of felony theft, burglary and trespass.
Lt. Clark Pennington says a Frederick County Sheriff's Office canine team found Cox in the woods near the airport after an airport worker reported the crash of the Piper Super Cub at about 2:15 a.m. Monday.
Pennington says Cox is familiar with airplanes but not proficient in their operation.
He says the plane owned by the Mid-Atlantic Soaring Association sustained damage to the fuselage and propeller.
