Pilot John Shell is safe after his “Super 6” modified T-6 Texan crashed near Jamestown Rd. in Morganton, North Carolina around 4:45 PM EST. Tyler Woodard, who witnessed the crash, and another person were able to aid Mr. Shell in getting away from the aircraft following the crash and before it was engulfed in flames.

Shell received non-life-threatening injuries and has been taken to the hospital.

There is no word on what might have caused the aircraft to crash. However, WSOCTV reported that witnesses have said that they heard the aircraft sputtering before the crash.

We here at AirshowStuff are glad to hear that John was able to walk away safe from this incident.
