Pilot in Stable Condition After Alburgh Plane Crash

Alburgh, Vermont - November 2, 2007

A Bakerfield man is lucky to be alive after crashing his single engine bi-plane into some trees on Friday.

The crash happened at about 4:45 Friday afternoon in Alburgh. Vermont police say 34-year-old Daniel Marcott crashed his stunt plane while doing aerobatic maneuvers near a small private airport just off of Poor Farm Road. A witness told police it's amazing that Marcott survived.

"He witnessed it flying inverted, upside down, make a pass by the runway and circle around and as it circled around again he heard a crash and noticed it just in time to see it colliding with some trees," said Sgt. Kirk Cooper of the Vermont State Police describing the witness's account.

Marcott was in stable condition on Friday night at the hospital in Burlington. His experimental plane was totaled.
