Press Release

Statement of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort:

FARMINGTON, PA (June 28, 2016) – This afternoon at approximately 12:45 p.m., a single-engine plane ran off the runway at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. The plane, which was arriving from Ontario and carrying a pilot and three passengers, was attempting to land on the resort’s airfield.

All four occupants of the aircraft, who are guests at the resort, refused hospital care. All were checked by local EMS crews and cleared.

Nemacolin’s security team responded to the incident and contacted 911. The Fayette County EMS, Marclay EMS and Farmington Volunteer Fire Department responded to the call immediately. The Fayette County Hazmat team arrived at the scene at 1:45 p.m. strictly as a precautionary measure.

The incident will be investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), both of which are on their way to the scene now. The plane has damage to its nose and is disabled, meaning it cannot take off and will need to be moved from the site.

Nemacolin has been operating an airfield on its 2,000-acre resort since 1987. The airfield is for private usage, subject to prior approval and reservations made with the resort’s security department.

Note for media wanting to be on the scene: In order for officials to access the plane, the resort has barricaded roads leading to the airfield. Please use the Hawes Road Entrance.
