Remington (AP) -- A vintage light airplane struck two trees and crashed near this northern Virginia town, critically injuring the airline pilot at the controls and injuring a passenger, authorities said.
The two-seat 1943 Piper Cub being flown by STEPHEN L. SZABOLSEKY, about 50, went down in a field about 100 yards from his Fauquier County airstrip around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday, said State Trooper D. P. Johnson.
SZABOLSEKY, a pilot for USAir, was taken by helicopter to Washington Hospital's Med-Star trauma unit, Johnson said. A hospital spokesman said SZABOLSEKY was in critical condition early today.
A juvenile, whose name Johnson declined to release, also was injured and was taken to Fauquier Hospital here, where he was listed in stable condition early today.
