DALTON: A 46-year-old Green man escaped injury Tuesday when he crashed a biplane in an area of Wayne County pilots use for maneuvers not normally allowed by the Federal Aviation Association.

The pilot, Jason P. Stropki, 43, was about 5,000 feet above sea level when he attempted to pull out of a maneuver deemed an “Aerobatic Box” by the FAA when the motor on his Pitts Special S-2B biplane stalled about 7:45 p.m., the State Highway Patrol said in a news release.

Patrol officers said Stropki initiated emergency procedures to restart the engine without success. He then performed a “dead-stick landing” on a private airfield at 1022 Southwest Lebanon Road. While landing, the left wings of the aircraft struck a utility pole, causing the plane to turn left and tip forward. The plane came to rest on Davis Road.

A passenger in the biplane with Stropki was also uninjured in the accident.

The FAA was notified of the crash that remains under investigation, the Highway Patrol said.
